A a child I did a lot of walking - our family did not have a car until 1960 - so it was either public transport of walking. My mother walked a lot. She took me to school (also pushing a pram) and back which for her was over four miles a day. On holiday we would go for walks - nothing serious - just a walk. Those born in the 1930/40's seemed to do a lot of walking as part of their everyday life. Now many able people get in their car to go 300m to the garage for a paper - I am not sure that is progress.
