Fields in Trust are delighted to be partnering with Go Jauntly, an app which helps everyone discover local walks and adventures.

The walks are created by those who know and love them, with anyone able to share their own favourite jaunt with fellow app users.

To celebrate Have a Field Day next weekend, the Go Jauntly team have put together a special collection of walks which pass through spaces protected with Fields in Trust.

The collection comprises ten walks, including:

Views & Culpeper Community Garden

This walk through Barnsbury, north London takes in Culpeper Community Garden which is protected as a Queen Elizabeth II Field. The space includes 56 small plots for local residents and community organisations who don’t have their own gardens or communal areas as well as a pond, wildlife area, rose pergola and tea hut.

Walk Barbican to St Pauls

Taking in the City of London and passing through Postman's Park, this walk finishes at St Paul's Cathedral where you can relax in Fields in Trust protected St Paul's Churchyard, a green oasis in the midst of the city.

Urban cool in Peckham Rye

If you're travelling by train this walk is ideal, beginning just outside Peckham Rye station. After picking a route south the second half of the walk takes you into Peckham Rye Park which really does have something for everyone. It was restored in 2005 thanks to a Heritage Lottery Fund grant and protected in June 2014.

Lunch break walk in Southwark Park

Take a stroll around picturesque Southwark Park, just a stone's throw from Canada Water on the Jubilee line. The park was opened in 1869 by the Metropolitan Board of Works and was protected at the same time as nearby Peckham Rye Park.

The river, the hill & the feast

If you're south of the river but fancy a slightly longer jaunt then try this walk which takes in the area around north Rotherhithe including Bermondsey's King George's Field, which was protected way back in August 1938!

Discover Roman London

Moving back north of the River Thames, here's a walk full of history which allows you to discover Tower Hill Garden, a small space in the heart of the city just across the road from the Tower of London.

Enjoying nature and art in Dulwich

Take a trip to trendy Dulwich and explore this Fields in Trust protected space which was first opened back in 1890. Discover all Dulwich Park has to offer including the lake, wildlife garden and café.

Oxleas Wood & Severndroog Castle

Considered to be one of the largest areas of ancient woodlands close to central London, Oxleas Wood is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and home to Severndroog Castle. It was protected as a Queen Elizabeth II Field in November 2012.

Weston Park

A visit to Sheffield isn't complete without taking in Weston Park, which opened to the public in 1875. Home to the Weston Park Museum, the Grade II Listed space is protected as a Centenary Field in memory of the 8,800 soldiers from Sheffield who gave their lives in World War I.

Church wood walk at Rivacre Valley

Descend into nature at Rivacre Valley Country Park which includes old woodlands, colourful meadows and the meandering Rivacre Brook running the length of the park and home to kingfishers. It was protected in June 2013 and is perfect for a day out with the family.
