Routes

Click on the map image to display the route in OS Maps.  Generally the routes will start by leaving from the front of the building but why not alternate the route and see which direction you prefer.  The route GPX can also be downloaded below (they have been zipped as WordPress doesn’t allow you to import .gpx files).

The route distance increases as you scroll down the page.  Please wear suitable footwear based on the terrain of the route.

When running on the road it is advisable to run on the right hand side so that you can see the oncoming traffic with the exception of going round corners its best to cross over to the left hand side if possible.  Please also be respectful of other road/path users.
