Royal Mail walk in Herefordshire

ROYAL MAIL postmen and women have teamed up to launch the exclusive First Class Walking Guide, a series of video guides to some of the most stunning walks across Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Delivering mail to 27 million addresses in the United Kingdom means postmen and women walk approximately 180 million miles every year, giving them unparalleled local knowledge. Six of these postal workers have used the experience gained on their respective routes, with videos guiding viewers along the beautiful walks. Choose from Anglesey, Nairn, Newcastle, Hereford, Belfast or Looe and join the postmen on a tour of their daily walking routes, revealing a personal journey of wonderful rambling delights and local gems.

The video guides give a great insight into walks that explore lesser-known local highlights across the countries, with personal anecdotes from the postmen and women.
