While with the Ramblers' Association, Alan was instrumental in producing a series of 10 walks leaflets, in conjunction with walking friends and Darlington Borough Council. The aim was to have easy-to-follow, self-contained illustrated publications which would be free to the public, provide access to all parts of the attractive countryside around Darlington, and contain interesting aspects of local history.

To view the leaflets as pdf files in Acrobat Reader installed on your PC click on the thumbnails below. They can then be downloaded to a suitable PC folder via your browser by the menu "File/save as…". When viewing them, pages 4 & 1 display together, then pages 2 & 3. If you wish, you can print each leaflet double-sided and fold in half to produce an A5-size booklet.

A word of caution………

The leaflets all include a map of the route and most of the walks are waymarked on the ground. Please note, however, that they were originally compiled quite some time ago and have not been fully revised recently. Paths sometimes change over time and you are advised to check the routes against a current OS map and watch for any signposted diversions while walking them. The walks are obviously undertaken at your own risk
