Useful Links

Stumblers don’t have any interests in any commercial organisations, but we provide the following useful links as a courtesy to our many website visitors.

Maps, Guides & Information

Ordnance Survey logo
Everyone knows of the Ordnance Survey, but not everyone knows about its excellent online OS Maps service. It lets you view and print off selected areas of the OS mapping; ideal for trail planning or when visiting an unfamiliar area. Saves having to buy – and carry – dozens of maps. It’s a subscription service, reasonably priced and with a free ‘guest’ demo function.
Exactly what it says on the tin. If you need almost any type of map for anywhere in the world, this is the place to find it.
Also offer a range of high-quality map-related products. Bookmark it now!
Walking in England logo
The excellent Walking in Cambridgeshire website provides a rich resource of walking information for our area. Not least a link back to this website, so we’re happy to return the courtesy.
Country Walking Magazine
Country Walking magazine is available in all the usual outlets or you can take out a subscription. Includes a regular selection of route cards for walks in all areas of the UK.
W4L logo
A growing resource of walks around the UK, to which we have nobly contributed a few.
Note that this is now a subscription service, as it uses OS mapping. But only £5 a year!
A very cool utility that uses both Google Maps and the OS mapping. Never get lost again!

This is the authoritative reference for all footpaths, bridleways, permissive paths, commons etc. in the county. Use this if you need to verify the route – or even existence – of a public right of way. Select ‘Leisure and Culture/Public Rights of Way’.

Lots of other useful information as well.

Pacerpoles
For serious trail hiking, hill work, or just for those whose legs aren’t quite what they used to be, Pacerpoles are by far the best walking poles we’ve found. However, you need to understand how to use them correctly, so watch the video and read the instructions on their website. Rare to find them in the shops, so buy online.

Fun

Tubular Fells logo
If you love the Lake District, you’ll love the Tubular Fells map. Now followed by Munroverground and Snowmotion in like vein! The site also offers some cool desktop background images.
