http://www.walkingenglishman.com/index.aspx An amazing site which not only describes very, very many walks of 'The Walking Englishman' (Mike Brockhurst) but also provides links to many other sites and a directory of all the long distance footpaths in the UK.
http://www.jbutler.org.uk/e2e/index.shtml  John Butler's 'End-to-end walk', from Lands End to John O'Groats, was walked in stages (not necessarily in order) between 1988 and 2004 and incorporates several long distance footpaths. Thanks John, for your inspiration!
http://www.blogger.com/profile/10150175869214103097 David spent 12 years walking around the coast of Britain (not described) and since then has walked from Dungeness to Durness (his 'Alternative End to End' walk) and from Lowestoft (the most easterly point in England) to St David's (the most westerly point in Wales) (his East-West walk). He was also completed an inland 'Kent to Cornwall' walk and an approximately circular "Walk around England (and a little bit of Wales)" This is a blog with a rather basic top level, but the descriptions of the walks themselves are excellent.
http://www.gtleisure.co.uk/walks/index.htm Once you get past the irritating walking boots that come towards you on the front page of George Tod's site, there are useful descriptions of a number of long distance paths. George prefers high level walking, so this link is included for a view that contrasts with my own.
http://ramblingowl.blogspot.com/ 'The Rambling Owl' - journal-style descriptions of long distance walks by real people(!), Mark and Colin Walford.

http://www.greatnorfolkwalk.com/index.html Bob Cains' account is one of the few others that describe the Angles Way, Peddars Way, Norfolk Coast Path and Weavers' Way as a round - his 'Great Norfolk Walk'. Bob has since emigrated to Australia.

http://annierak.hoofbags.me.uk/index.html Another site that includes many of the more local routes that we have done - and many that we haven't - with lots of photos. Some of the long distance paths described are far from complete, but I guess I do that too.
http://www.petes-walks.co.uk/index.html Pete Collins is based in the Chilterns and his site includes descriptions of long distance paths in that area, plus others. 2016 update: now that I am living part of the time in Milton Keynes it is a joy to discover that Pete has walked many of the same paths as we have walked, or hope to walk, in that area. I also realise that Pete's style is what I aspire to (but don't always manage) - very readable descriptions of his experiences along long distance paths rather than just saying "I turned left at such and such". Thanks Pete.
http://griffmonster-walks.blogspot.com/ Griff Chamberlain's excellent blog includes walks in Norfolk and Suffolk as well as further afield.
http://ruthl.wordpress.com/ At last - another woman of about my age who walks and writes about it! Ruth Livingstone, a GP from Lincolnshire has a rather more ambitious aim though, namely to walk around the coast of the British mainland. Her blog is well written and a pleasure to read.
http://ramblingman.org.uk/ 'The Rambling Man' aka Andrew Bowden. Descriptions of several of the long distance paths we have walked, plus others we would like to do!
