Accessible Countryside Walks Routes for the Disabled

Access to the countryside for people with disabilities, especially wheelchair users and those with mobility problems is often difficult if not impossible, as a wheelchair user since 1976 I can say this with confidence as I recall cracking my head open once on a cattle grid but that's another story!  Access to the countryside is however improving albeit slowly. Find a selection of countryside walks accessible to wheelchair users and others with mobility problems listed below.  Ableize has not visited these locations so it would be advisable to contact the individual sites if you are unsure of their levels of access, that said we will only list countryside disabled access sites that appear professional and from a reliable source.

If you know of any other routes or country walk suitable and accessible for the disabled please suggest them here and help spread the word to others with disabilities that would like to enjoy the countryside.
