A NEW website which will help promote the Cleveland Way and the Pennine Way to visitors is officially launched today (Monday, January 13).

The new National Trails website includes high-quality Ordnance Survey mapping, as well as nearby attractions and facilities to visit, including castles, churches, parks and museums.

New interactive features also mean local businesses can upload details of the services they provide to people visiting the area.

This includes where to stay, what to see and where to eat, and to help find facilities such as bike hire shops, horse riding stables and outdoor equipment shops.

The National Trails site covers 15 trails across the country, which locally include the Pennine Way, the Pennine Bridleway, the Cleveland Way, the Hadrian’s Wall Way and the Yorkshire Wolds Way.

A new national trail, the England Coast Path, is still being developed.

Recommended itineraries for walking and cycling are downloadable, and there are ideas for tailored outings such as geocaching trails.

Walkers and local residents can also upload content including photographs, recommendations and reviews plus details of events.

Environment Minister Dan Rogerson said: “National Trails pass through some of the most stunning landscapes in Britain and are a welcome attraction for visitors. This new website will make it easier for people to make the most of the countryside and can help build stronger local economies and businesses.”
