Site statistics: 79 walks on-line, distance walked 323.75 miles (521.02 Km)
WWW.DerbyshireWalking.co.uk began as an ad-hoc project in late September 2008 when I decided to document some of the walks that I was doing in order to escape a knee operation, and illustrate them with photographs taken along the way. Originally hosted on a free ISP package the limitations of the bundled "site-builder" became apparent towards the middle of 2010. As is often the case in life little was done to resolve the limitations of the site builder, so early in 2011 I decided to redevelop the site from scratch. Armed with a small library of books on HTML, PHP and all sorts of other database and web development stuff; work on the new got under way in the middle February 2011.
from 30 Derbyshire locations.
On March 27th the new site went live under it's existing domain name, new walks were added, and anti-spam sorted to enable comments to be left by visitors. Shortly after the relaunch I decided that the site name was not really linked to the content; as a result a new domain name was purchased and the morning on April 11th the whole site was migrated to it's new domain www.DerbyshireWalking.co.uk
Currently the site has one hundred and twenty-seven active pages of which seventy-nine are walks. As this site is sill under development (as my web skills improve), please feel free to make suggestions for any improvement that think may be of benefit to visitors of this site.
