Team Bear Grylls Member and Merrell ambassador Lizzie Webb has a life people like me dream of.

On Monday I went for a walk. Nothing unusual about that per se, I like to walk, and being a bank holiday I had a whole day to partake in one of my favourite pastimes. Except on Monday the plan was to walk further than I have ever walked in one go – at least

Lasting an expected 20 weeks, the works promises much disruption to our 15-20 minute commute, including right turn bans, road closures, temporary traffic lights, and all the other things associated with massive highways projects.
