Prompted by a request for information, I began thinking about how to walk some of our major routes using the rail network, supplemented by direct bus links from the railway station. These links may not all be one-day options, but may require intermediate accommodation to be found.
We are much more fortunate than in the days when we were hunting down bus and train timetables on paper: nowadays National Rail, Traveline, and Bustimes do the heavy lifting. My lists of transport opportunities link to these providers. In general, each route has two pages: a narrative describing the route to and from a railway station which is on, or at least very near, the route, and a list of direct bus links between the route and a railway station: in extremis, this may include a taxi journey to be used principally as an emergency exit from the route.
