Welcome to the LWUG!

LWUG is a free to use website designed to provide a central platform for those wishing to post or read about Day or Evening Walks in southeast England. We request that wherever possible, Walks should be accessible by Public Transport.

Any Subscriber can post a Walk on this site, or alternatively they can post a link to a Walk Event elsewhere.
LWUG has a Location database with over three thousand locations in the UK with What3Words, Grid Reference and Postcode information. This allows the Walk's start and end locations to be tied to entries in this dataset which in turn allows users to easily find these locations. More locations can be added online as and when they are needed.
The site also allows Subscribers to create a new walk route online, to which they can add any GPS, PDF and Picture files (drag and drop). Relevant links to other sites may also be added.
LWUG recommends any walk documents are created under the https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/ definition which permits sharing (with attribution), but forbids commercial use.
Subscribers can Post Walk Events as Public or Private (visible to Subscribers only). They may use any Walk Routes that are available (subject to any copyright notices) or simply place all the Event details in their Post.
On Subscriber Only Walk Events, Posters can request that those who intend to go, click or tap to show their intention.
This site also empowers all Subscribers with admin rights to moderate content and manage page content (including this page) so the site can adapt to changes in these uncertain times.

So all in all what can you do here ?

Here's the summary of the stuff you can do ...
  • View recent and future Events and Comments posted here (and links and comments posted elsewhere).
  • View Walk Routes
  • Add your own Event (which can be public or subscriber facing) and modify/delete/deactivate/email about it up to midday on the day of the Event.
  • Add/Edit Locations used by walk routes (e.g. stations, bus stops, car parks, landmarks etc.)
  • Add/Edit a Walk Route and drag and drop any files associated with that walk onto the walk details.
  • You may also search all Events, Comments, Walk Routes and Locations
  • Have your say on any of the Blog threads
  • Peruse and download library documents
  • Finally, you may record your attendance on any Events or Event Link if you wish to attend (but this is completely optional at present).
