Insurance firm and private healthcare provider Pru Health has announced it is to sponsor a walking festival run by the National Trust.

Those who love to go walking will be able to enjoy treks of various kinds around 1,000 of the Trust's properties during the half-term period, which runs from October 23rd to 30th.

William Wake from the National Trust's outdoors team commented: "From guided walks and long distance hiking, to self led trails and family orienteering, there's something for everyone."

PruHealth has said it is keen to encourage walking as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Its chief executive Neville Koopowitz described participating in the festival as the "perfect way for people to enjoying themselves whilst exercising".

Hikes people can undertake on National Trust land include Kinder Scout, Derbyshire's highest peak at 2,088 ft above sea level.

Those climbing the mountain in autumn may wish to wear warm outdoor jackets as the plateau is very flat and exposed to the wind.
