Fieldfare’s Phototrails

WHERE TO VISIT IN THE COUNTRYSIDE? – YOU DECIDE!

Your Countryside, Your Trails, Your Choice – that is the objective for our groundbreaking new website.

The  ‘Phototrails’ website – www.phototrails.org.- is an innovative concept that allows users to view countryside routes through a series of photographs and descriptions of the path features, taking in surface, path width, gradients, barriers and amenities such as seats, disabled parking, and accessible toilets, all of which, to some, is important information to know before making the decision on whether to visit a site or not. It is hoped that the website will be particularly useful to people with disabilities and will allow disabled people make up their own mind if a trail is accessible to them by using the information provided.

The Fieldfare Trust has visited more than 70  sites across the UK to build up a database of ‘phototrails’, and will regularly be adding new trails.  All verified Phototrails have been produced by a trained Fieldfare Trust project officer based on the accessibility standards of the Countryside for All Good Practice Guide, and users will be able to make comments on paths through the Blog section of the Phototrails website.

For  Service Providers/Land Owners Phototrails are a great way for to promote access to your countryside to visitors of all abilities. In addition, joining the network of Phototrails is a great way to provide your service to people with disabilities. Having your trails hosted on the website will not only provide valuable information for anyone comprar viagra femenina en farmacias wanting to make choices and decisions about where they go in the countryside, it will also help you meet your duties and responsibilities towards people with disabilities.

We hope Phototrails will help people of all abilities to make their own choices about where to go to explore and enjoy the countryside. Good access to the countryside needs to be matched by great information about that access, it’s about enabling individuals, families and friends to plan their visits to the countryside with real confidence about the experience they can share in. It’s all wrapped up in the phrase, ‘Your Countryside, Your Trails, Your Choice’!
