Take an iFootpath to the pub…

By Sarah Groves, also posted in News on

iFootpath, stile in WiltshireAdnams has teamed up with iFootpath - the online walking guide - to create a series of eleven walks exploring some of East Anglia's finest countryside with refreshment stops at 15 Adnams pubs. iFootpath is the innovation of husband and wife team, Richard Jemmett and Claire Sharp. Keen walkers, Richard and Claire are eager to share the joy of walking and to inspire more people to get out and enjoy beautiful walks across the UK.  They created iFootpath as a library of modern walking guides, bringing together the best of both worlds, old and new. iFootpath logoThe guides include all the best features of traditional guide books with turn-by-turn directions, lovely photography and rich information about the history and the environment. With full detailed descriptions of the routes there are no nasty surprises along the way and Bobbie Dog – the third member of the iFootpath team – also tests every walk (and stile!) for dog-friendliness. The iFootpath App adds the benefits of modern technology meaning you can follow your real-time progress around the live satellite route map and add your own comments and ratings. Claire and Richard, iFootpathClaire comments: "We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Adnams to create pub walking guides in East Anglia. Walking is one of the best ways to work up an appetite – with lots of fresh air and chance to raise your heart rate – and what better way of satisfying your hunger and thirst than a great Adnams pub." Many Adnams pubs are situated in the perfect position to take advantage of East Anglia's beautiful natural scenery. With a mix of coast, heaths and woodland walks, the terrain in this part of the UK is gentle enough for most walkers to enjoy, it's full of interesting sights as well as an abundance of wildlife. Walkers are encouraged to contribute to the routes, sharing their comments and photos, helping to ensure that the walks are up-to-date. The Suffolk Walking Festival launched on Saturday, so there’s no better time to try out one of these walks. You can find out more about iFootpath and download the iFootpath app (iPhone or Android) on the iFootpath website. Printable versions of the walks can be downloaded as pdfs:
