Welcome to Hetty Hikes

Hetty and Mr H like walking, local history and taking photos. We want to combine these and show family and friends, near and far, where we have been. We can only do this with help from Mark of GlosPCRepair.com and GHXhosting.com

For visitors – it may give you ideas for places to visit or walk.

NT = National Trust, HHA = Historic Houses Association – free to friends

Pages are arranged in country and county order.         All images on the website copyright of HettyHikes.co.uk
