A regional daily has appointed a new country walks reporter to write about the subject.
Jonathan Smith, left, will provide a piece detailing a different walking route in The Press, York, every week.
Jonathan is a publisher author who wrote Dales 30, a book describing the highest mountains in the Yorkshire Dales.
He also offers training days and weekends where people learn to read maps and compasses, as well as organising guided tours and walking holidays.
Of his new role with The Press, Jonathan said: “There will be a different walk every week, with interesting facts about the area.
“The routes will vary, some weeks it might be ten or 11 miles, and some might be shorter at two to three miles in length.”
“There will be walks in the Dales as well as the North York Moors and Wolds.”
