Recent Footprints Events

From Cape Wrath, the most north-westerly point on the British mainland to Lands End via the Peak District, Lake District, Pennines and the North and South Downs. From the Black Cullin of the Isle of Skye to the Blackgang Chine dinosaurs on the Isle of White, Footprints has been there, walked (and climbed) there and, sometimes, even got the T shirt! We even venture abroad with Austria, Spain, Germany and the Canaries all visited in recent years.
