The man who has walked and still is walking, the Peak District

Britain, Europe and the World; he has no equal.

John Merrill 

 Walk Guides

"Hiking the sacred paths and trails of the world for others to follow".

"The miracle of life is not to fly in the air, or walk-on the water, but to walk on the earth"- Chinese saying.

"For every mile that you walk, you extend your life by 21 mins."

The man who walked the Peak District

The man who walked the Peak District

This is the remarkable story of how John Merrill has so far walked more than 120,000 miles in the Peak District and Derbyshire. He has walked every path many times, explored every facet of the area - the limestone dales, gritstone edges and moorland and the rivers. As he walked he learnt the history of the landscape, the villages, churches, industry, halls, castles, customs, prehistoric remains and folklore. He discovered where planes had crashed on the moors and followed in the footsteps of the early rock climbers. He has left no stone unturned. The result of these walks, wearing out a hundred pairs of boots - he has written and published more than 200 books on the area and created a whole string of walks - more than 600. Some short and some long. His achievement is unprecedented and this is his story of how it began and developed. You will be humbled and want to put on your walking boots and explore the places he loves and knows intimately.

Happy walking!

Although you have written a number of advantages of the co education in your post, I am not finding the concept of coeducation more appealing and attractive. Its disadvantages are far greater than its advantage in my company.

If you talk about the difference between current era’s education and previous era’s education you will not stop talking for long time. You will not be able to stop talking because this is very deep and vast discussion because of educational changing.
