We would very much like to hear from people who have completed the Vanguard Way, or if you have comments about any aspect of the route, this website or the free guide.

When you complete the route (or even if you have done so in the past) you can get a certificate by providing details of your itinerary (dates and start/finish points).

Please let us know by emailing indicating the dates and starting/finishing points for each leg of your walk.
