'Walking has created paths, roads, trade routes, generated maps, guidebooks, gear, and further afield, a vast library of walking stories and poems, of pilgrimages, mountaineering expeditions, meanders and summer picnics. The landscapes, urban and rural, gestate the stories, and the stories bring us back to the sites of this history.'
