    Things to consider before you start to walk:

    • Think about what you might need; comfortable and sturdy shoes; weather appropriate clothing such as a rain coat or hat; a camera or smartphone.
    • Think about your goal, for example do you want to walk for a certain amount of time, or cover a set distance? Do you simply want to enjoy your local surroundings?
    • If you are going on a long walk, consider telling someone where you are planning to go and approximately how long you think you will be out.
    • Consider the Countryside code.
    • Leave gates and property as you find them.
    • Protect plants and animals and take your litter home.
    • Keep dogs under close control.
