Title: The Greenwich Meridian Trail
Post by: PeterC on 4 December 2017, 07:38:08
The Greenwich Meridian Trail (http://www.greenwichmeridiantrail.co.uk/) is 439 km (273 miles) and follows the line of the Prime Meridian as closely as practical, using public rights of way. The route does not slavishly stick to The Meridian, but has been chosen to give an interesting, varied and memorable walk. These two websites Walking Englishman (https://www.walkingenglishman.com/ldp/greenwichmeridiantrail.html) and LDWA (Long Distance Walkers Association) (https://www.ldwa.org.uk/ldp/members/show_path.php?path_name=Greenwich+Meridian+Trail) include an interactive map.

The LDWA map uses maps from John Thorne (http://www.the-thorns.org.uk/mapping/walkers.html), which are specifically designed for walkers in Britain.
