I used the one on the website: @SlowWaysUK

It all seemsĀ  a bit vague. "free to download" rarely means free usage.

Unless it adds more paths which aren't in OS or OSM (I don't think it 
will) I'm unsure of its purpose. There are already plenty of routers & 
walk recommendation sites. Why does giving them a specific name benefit 
users? The expression 'reinventing the wheel' comes to mind. Maybe I'll 
be proved wrong.
