Dominic Bates – editor of walk magazine


Welcome to the new-look walk website! If this is your first visit to our digital shores, you’ve just discovered the online version of Britain’s biggest walking magazine – read by over 135,000 passionate walkers and Ramblers members up and down the country.

We’ve been working really hard to make oodles of improvements to the magazine, and even more to the website. Not only can you find all the content from walk issues past and present here, but there’s also loads more features, news and reviews from the world of walking updated every week to keep you going until the next magazine comes rolling off the press.

But only you – the readers – can really judge whether any of these changes are any good. So let us know what you think by posting a comment under this blog. Which bit of the new mag do you like best? Have we got the balance right between leisure-focused walking articles and topical, campaigning features? What would you like to see more or less of in the next edition? Have you found any glitches on the new website? We can’t promise to accommodate every suggestion straight away, but all of your comments will help us plan the future of the mag and the website.

And when you’ve finished getting your opinions off your chest, why not visit the Walks section to download a Routemaster routecard, and upload your photos and comments from the walk after you’ve done it? After all, whatever we do online or in print, it’s really all about the walking.

    Dominic anyway of sharing walking information and encouraging people to get out into the countryside is a good thing. The website looks great and simple to navigate. You have done a good job.

    Hey Dom.
    Well done! Looks great - refreshing, contemporary and uplifting. Who said the Ramblers were a stuffy lot. Keep up the effort and best of luck.
