Minders undertake at least a 3 times a year walk of their section, although many do so more frequently. Minders check the condition of the path, the state of the furniture (stiles etc.) They check the condition of way marking and any missing or damaged Black and White and Gold way marking stickers should be replaced. It is also required to ensure that way marking is not becoming covered by vegetation, which will help walkers making their way along the route.
If you wish to support the work of the Monarch's Way in maintaining the route perhaps you would consider making a much appreciated donation towards the cost of upkeep.
The upkeep of the route is funded solely by sales of Guide Books etc. The Organisation is non profit making and none of the volunteers receive any payments or expenses of any kind
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the donation link
Vicky Owens Fastest Time on the Monarch’s Way
Vicky has set a fastest known time on the Monarch's Way on the Gold Standard version of the route including all the places that Trevor suggested you visit in his guide books and included on his route. She completed the 625 miles in 13 days and 13 hours and 38 minutes
Vicky also raised £2000 for the Monarch’s Way. This has helped provide notice boards and also allow with other projects along the route.
The full distance on the Monarch's Way is longer than Trevor initially thought. This information has been possible due to modern GPS tracking systems and slight route changes.
Welcome to one of the most exciting stories about a Monarch King Charles II and one of the best and varied, 625 mile plus long walk in British History.

As would have been Trevor's wish, the work on the Monarch's Way continues through the team of Minders and Association members. The ultimate aim is to see the Monarch's Way designated as a National Trail. Caring for the route and promoting it will be a fit testimonial to Trevor.
