More people may have become interested in grabbing their walking poles and putting on their walking boots to enjoy the National Forest after it was featured on the TV recently, it has been stated.

The National Forest Company's tourism and promotions officer Penny Wilkinson said the coverage given to the forest when it was shown on the BBC Countryfile show has led to a rise in the number of visits to its website.

"Visitors to the National Forest website have been using the site to find out more about the people and places highlighted in the programme", she said, after a three-fold rise in traffic to the portal in the week following the broadcast.

As well as offering routes for walkers, the forest may appeal to those wishing to don a cycling helmet and enjoy its biking trails.

Covering 200 square miles in the midlands, 18 per cent of the National Forest is made up of woodland.
