Well there's going to be a bevy of unemployed walk-on girls from darts and grid girls from motor racing.  Perhaps we can have programmes where they introduce a walk or a sandwich filling each.

I'll add myself to that list. Ever since I was tempted to watch one of her programs, misunderstanding that I might learn something from it  and saw her scuttling alongside an 6ft wall down it the southeast, with a breathless mention that there was a 'private estate', on the other side. I thought what a wimp, get one of the numerous entourage you are walking with to give you a leg up so you can get a look over the otherside. Just as she took on the Presidency of the Ramblers, where she could have done a bit of good raising questions about where we are not allowed to walk.


I think Vixen Tor was in the news at the time and not very far very far away from where she was wiggling her butt at the cameras.


I might watch the the best 100 walks 'off piste', if it were to be made. I could put forward an 8 mile stroll Mrs BWW and I did in a 8000 acre 'no go zone', which would put to shame any section of the Cheshire Sandstone Trail and would be a key element in a Shropshire extension of that excellent route.


Curious thought has occurred, if you find enough people to think that you have got a measurement of popularity of a prescribed route, have you found a large percentage of those who are incapable of making up there own independent routes.

That wasn't the purpose of the TV programme though BWW.


Who knows what conversations she had or walks she did off screen ...

Just as well I didn't watch it,  :) just been a waste of time.

Though at the time she was President of the Ramblers there was a joint policy on access published by all user parties, that came up with the notion that access should be demand led. All the studies I have made along the English side of the Marches show that people are trying to walk or ride X country and it is the sections that were left off the definitive map that stop them doing this.
