Public transport distance matrices

Matrices have been devised for certain routes, allowing the walker to check distances to and from public transport access points. The calculation for each cell includes the walk-in/out distances for the row/column pair of endpoints, but not the walk-past distances for intermediate links.

Use the alphastrip below to jump to the appropriate initial letter for a selected route within the list. If there are no routes with a particular initial letter, the jump will have no effect.

Greater Ridgeway

A 605km walk which chains the four paths which link Lyme Regis with the North Norfolk coast. Public transport connections are available at key staging points along the route.

Hertfordshire Way

A 264km circuit round the county, taking in Royston, St Albans, Tring station, Chipperfield Common, Aldenham, Hertford, Perry Green and Bishop’s Stortford. Public transport connections (54 locations, 3 matrices) are available throughout. Watford and Stevenage make good base stations.

The Ridgeway

A 140km National Trail between Avebury (officially Overton Hill) and Ivinghoe Beacon, linking at its western end with the Wessex Ridgeway and at its eastern end with the Icknield Way Trail, and forming part of the Greater Ridgeway route. Public transport connections (34 locations, 2 matrices) are available throughout, though there are some long gaps in places. Swindon might serve as a base station in the west and Reading in the middle. However, overall, the most convenient single base station is London.
