Never mind the politics, go for a walk instead. And not just any walk, but a walk that scientists and psychologists will confirm is more calming and more beautiful than any other: a walk by water. Ever since our days as thirsty cavemen, we’ve craved a landscape with a water-feature at its centre, and the stories in this month’s issue are about walking at its (literally) reflective best. And whether you find yourself drawn to the sky-lakes of Snowdonia, the long and lovely unfurling of the Esk in the Lake District, an immersive experience on Dorset’s Jurassic Coast, the simple pleasures of a placid canal or one of our many other opportunities by lake, loch and llyn, you can be sure of ultimate refreshment with the new August issue.
Plus: free inside this issue – ‘Better with a Dog’, a 24-page mini-mag from the CW editorial team all about walking’s perfect partnership. All the advice, kit and resources you need to get the most from man’s best walking buddy.
