A KEEN Romsey dog walker has created a brand new website for walkers during the coronavirus outbreak.

During PM Boris Johnson's announcement for a lockdown, residents of the UK were told they could enjoy one piece of exercise a day.

Now, Nick Hutson, has created a website to fill his time during isolation and lockdown for people to walk and add their own "safe" walks and routes across the country.

This is so he can walk on a specific route and keep the two metre distance from other walkers.

He said: "For some time I have been recording my dog walks on a Googlesites website to share and keep a record.

"When the lockdown started I thought about where I could walk and still keep the two metre gap between me and others.

"I realised many paths were too narrow and thought it would be an interesting exercise to use my dog walking experience to check out “safe distancing” exercise walks one could do without getting in the car.

"I thought it might be helpful to share with other residents so that they can explore routes at this difficult time that they know have space to keep a safe distance. This gave me a little project to do whilst isolating."

Nick added: "As we go on, I aim to add any routes I find so that the website grows.

"It would be great if others could both use it and share their own findings to make the isolation exercise walk more varied."

The main routes are aimed at the Romsey region, and the surrounding villages.

If anyone else finds some safe walks Nick can try, email him at spike516205@gmail.com
