Our first blog post!
Welcome to the new look official National Trails shop.
A year ago we started to sell a few books and maps through the National Trails website. We started the shop because we wanted people to be able to get hold of the best guidebooks for the Trails easily, and to be able to pick up small mementos.
It has been a great success and we’re delighted to be able to launch a new, smarter, easier to use shop.
The new shop has more products and these will be increasing over the next few months. We’ll be selling some of the very best quality outdoor equipment, perfect for you to take with you on your walks, or as a gift for someone who shares our love of the great outdoors.
The first new product you will notice are A-Z maps. These are map booklets, there is one for most of the National Trails. They are really useful and easy to follow, as they use our favourite Ordnance Survey 1:25,000 maps and are a great shape to carry. They are much easier to handle in windy weather than a large paper map. You can also buy a waterproof case specially designed to fit them perfectly - just in case you encounter a bit of rain on your walk.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be adding more and more products so if you are starting to think about Christmas presents, we might just have the perfect thing.
