The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Sports Direct.com

High St, Scunthorpe DN15 6HB, UK – 0344 332 5253

One of the shops that sell more modern looking clothes. If you want something from a real reliable brand, this is your store.

Normal sports shop

B&Q

Gallagher Retail Park, 2 Doncaster Rd, Scunthorpe DN15 8GR, UK – 01724 281008

Came here looking for paint and wardrobe doors. Everything we wanted regarding paint was perfect, but there were no wardrobes in this store.

Staff member who helped us could not do more to help me with what i required for my plumbing problem. Very good service.

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the country. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks..

Camping and Caravaning

Normanby Hall Country Park

Normanby Rd, Normanby, Scunthorpe DN15 9HU, UK – 01724 720588

A really beautiful place. Loads to see and do with loads of family events throughout the year. Great for walking and dog friendly.

We were at a wedding reception here and I thought it was a great choice in terms of the views, the history of the place and atmosphere. I think the waiters and staff could be a little smarter and more professional but it didn't bother me that they weren't.

Kirks Korner Motel

12 Scotter Rd, Scunthorpe DN15 8DR, UK – 01724 855344

We had a ground floor twin room and a top first floor double. Both ensuite. Both with access to a communal kitchen area which we didn't actually use but seemed clean and tidy. Both rooms were provided spotless and with tea and coffee/kettle/towels (but no toiletries). Rooms and bathrooms spacious enough, though the twin was a little larger. The window facing away from the road looked out on the ground floor straight into a garage and a slightly decrepit back garden - but this was no issue for a quick overnight stay and blackout blinds plus the 10am checkout time ensured that nothing disturbed us. The place is attached to a petrol station - where you check in and out. It is also close by to the motorway and a large Tesco - very convenient. In all - excellent value for money and would definitely use again if I needed an overnight stop in the area.

For £40 a night... excellent. Looks a bit rough round edges arriving. But rooms have been recently refurbished and very clean and comfortable with on suite. Recommend for contractors especially.

Cosgrove

33-35 Wells St, Scunthorpe DN15 6HL, UK – 01724 279405

Host is very friendly and rooms are neat and clean..
