Three Points of the Compass does like to get his teeth into a decent length of trail when he can. Not all of these are the official ‘National Trails’ however. But it is my aim to slowly work through as many of these over time, however I doubt I’ll ever knock them all off.
Below are a handful of links to a few blogs I’ve written of just a few of my hikes- including a little on gear and water sources etc.

- Icknield Way
- Isle of Sheppey- the birthplace of British Aviation

A hike across mainland Britain
- My 2018 Three Points of the Compass walk, across England, Wales and Scotland, took in the furthest mainland compass points South, South West, West, North West, North and North East, I also walked Lands End to John O’Groats within this longer hike. Some longer trails were included in this- South West Coast Path, Offas Dyke Path. Pennine Way, West Highland Way and the Cape Wrath Trail.
