Beyond the headlines, our national parks have infinite capacity to refresh and restore – as long as you know how to get out of the gravitational field of the really very few saturated hot spots. Which is where we come in with an issue packed full of walk ideas that feel like endless unexpected fivers retrieved from pockets of favourite jeans. It’s also an exquisite curtain-raiser for autumn (and if you weren’t looking forward to that yet, boy, you will be!), and bulging at the seams with fascinating, unexpected stories. Like the true-life mystery in the North Downs Agatha Christie was the centre of, what we reckon is the best mountain walk in the UK for autumn, how to enter the kingdom of the owls as the nights draw in, why sheep are way more interesting than you think, and a myth-buster (and occasional confirmer) of some long-standing bits of walking folklore.
