Linking to lists of walks

You're most welcome to link to subsets of walks relevant to your own website. This page describes how to construct the appropriate URLs.

Individual walks

URLs should either be of the form:

/walk/{name}

For example:

/walk/bedruthan_steps

Or using the short form with a numerical ID:

/w/{id}

For example:

/w/40

Lists of walks

Walks by locality

Lists of walks can be returned just for a particular locality. URLs should be of the form:

/walks/near/{locality}

For example:

/walks/near/boscastle

See the bottom of this page for the full list of localities currently available.

Walks in larger regions

If you want walks in one of the four (north, southeast, mid, west) regions of Cornwall, use:

/walks/in/west_cornwall

For AONB regions, use:

/walks/aonb/trevose_head_to_stepper_point

Walks by type

URLs should be of the form:

/walks/featuring/{type}

For example:

/walks/featuring/beach

Types can be combined with a locality, but must come afterwards, for example:

/walks/near/tintagel/featuring/beach

See below for the list of walk types.

Sorting results

By default, walks are sorted by grade and then distance. You can change this by adding the following to the URL:

  • /by/title
    - by walk title
  • /by/distance
    - by length of walk
  • /latest
    - most recent walks first

For example:

/walks/near/padstow/latest
/walks/in/north_cornwall/featuring/beach/by/title

Searches by multiple criteria

/walks/search?{query-string}

For example for unstrenous walks near Boscastle:

/walks/search?locality=boscastle&max-grade=3

Available query string parameters are:

  • locality - name of locality (see below for a list)
  • type - type of walk (see below for a list)
  • max-grade - max steepness grade e.g. 4
  • min-miles - minimum distance in miles e.g. 2.5
  • max-miles - maximum distance in miles e.g. 5.5

Although you can have multiple criteria, only single values for each criterion are currently supported (e.g. you can only search for one locality at a time).
