Cumbrians urged to enjoy scenery on their doorstep during Great British Walk 2012
Bookmark and Share
People living in Cumbria are lucky to have some of the UK's most beautiful scenery right on their doorstep, but many may take it for granted by not getting out and about as often as they should.

The National Trust is aiming to change this with the launch of its Great British Walk 2012 event, which runs from now until November 4th.

It aims to encourage everyone to dig out their walking boots and enjoy a ramble in the countryside, whether it is a long hike or simply a short stroll.

The National Trust's lead ranger for the South Lakes John Atkinson told the Westmorland Gazette it shouldn't be too hard to find a route to suit all members of the family.

"We've got loads of great walking events and downloadable trails across Cumbria over the next two months," he commented.

It may be that Britons do not need too much encouragement, as a recent M&S Money study found 21 per cent of people already go walking regularly.

Anyone taking out the National Trust's challenge in Cumbria should look out for the giant photo frames that have been placed at various beauty spots to help people find the best views and get great pictures of them.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801444578-ADNFCR
