On 6th March at Ilam, in addition to our usual three walks, there will be a shorter walk of 5-6 miles devoted to navigation and map-reading.
These skills enable you to walk independently, confidently and safely. They can open up a new world of walking. If you want to expand your world, join us on this walk.

We all know about calling 999 when you need emergency assistance, but do you know about dialling 112 instead, and why you should so if you do need emergency help?
Your mobile phone will connect to 112 emergency services via any network, so if there is no signal from your mobile provider your call will still connect if there is a strong enough signal from another provider. It will connect even if you have no credit.
If you’ve registered your mobile you can even summon help with a text message. This can work even when the signal is so poor you can't make a voice call.
This is is a European initiative to harmonise services throughout the EEC, so if you need to, you can summon assistance via 112 when you’re on holiday abroad without knowing the local emergency numbers.
Look at this video to find out more about this.
Leaders should register their mobiles so that if necessary they can summon assistance from their mobiles by text. We all hope that we will never have to do this, but it is important to be prepared for every eventuality. It could be a life saver.
You'll often hear that when you walk with Liverpool Ramblers. At the lunch stop, or at the pub or tea shop after a walk, we swap information about our walks: the walk we've just done, walks we plan to do, walks we've done in the past, great walks.
Mostly we learn about our walks by word of mouth from other ramblers. We've been doing that for years, so now we know an awful lot of great walks. But now there's another way to find out about great walks.
Nobody knows more about walking and great walks than Ramblers, and Ramblers has now begun to collect this knowledge in a huge database of currently more than 1500 great walks and still growing — Ramblers Routes.
They vary from easy to hard, long to short, north to south, east to west. There's something here for everybody, everywhere, from beginner to seasoned walker.
In Ramblers' Routes you'll find descriptions of the routes so you can follow the walks easily, maps, reviews, even GPS data in GPX files. You'll be confident using these routes descriptions because they have been created and independently checked by experienced Ramblers.
Everyone can use the Ramblers Routes database of walks. Ramblers' members have access to all walks on the database, but many walks are available to non-members too. You just need to register.
Once you've registered then you'll be able to down-load and print route instructions for some or all of the walks, depending on whether or not you're a member of Ramblers.
Just click on the image below to see what walks are available. Anyone can search the database. You need to specify a key word such as a place name, or a postcode, and a select a search distance. If you want to see details of the walks shown, you must register and the system will prompt you to login or register.
You can see the walks as a list or on a map. Many of them will be in your favourite walking area. Though there are fewer locally, there are many more around Manchester and other nearby areas.
If you know a great walk, don't keep it to yourself. Pass it on via Ramblers' Routes.
You can contribute to the Ramblers Routes database as either a walks contributor or as a walks checker, using the volunteer options form. You can link to it from the image below, and select Developing and checking routes
