Please note that the information in the directions may now be a little out-of-date. It's a good idea to supplement them with a map; the numbers in the directions are OS six-figure grid references. All of the walks except 6, 8, and 10 are completely covered by Explorer (1:25000) map 209. Walks 6 and 8 use Explorers 209 and 210. Walk 10 uses Explorers 195 and 209. All of the walks are completely covered by Landranger (1:50000) map 154.
