Below are a few links that you may find both useful and interesting.
Long Distance Walking Association (LDWA)
An excellent source of information about almost all the long distance footpaths in the UK.
For information on the History of the City of Worcester - where it all began.
For more information on Boscobel House, Halesowen Abbey and other properties.
The Ramblers Association
This site contains practical information such as public transport, accommodation, maps needed etc.
However it concentrates on national trails unfortunately, and no longer contains details about many of the UK's long distance walks. In view of this we prefer the LDWA for this type of information.
