A place to find and add either a global or national link to a searchable database. Links are in the first post.

Feel free to add a link below that leads to a database rather than an individual item and I’ll edit it into your country in the first post.

Dunno if that’s necessarily the right link to post, but the LDWA are a good source of trail maps and information in the UK

I don’t know if this lists trails outside the US. I have used it when people nominate things that are “famous landmarks” on trails but could also just be natural features. If this website mentions the feature as something people encounter and take photos of, then I’ll accept it as a POI

Super useful, I use some of these but was not aware of a few. Thank you very much!

Brilliant :hugs:
Idk if that fits to your collection, but for “Stolpersteine” (global) I always start with this wikipedia page, where all cities are linked with an own list:

At some point I think you’ll want to update the $SUBJECT a bit. I skipped over the initial post because I didn’t know what it was about.

Thanks but the human tolerance for clicking links maxes out at two so I thought it better to keep it simple. I updated the second post :slight_smile:

I would be very careful with the Wikipedia list itself as usually people who fake these in Wayfarer also fake entries on the wikipedia list.

The linked local lists of the cities are better as no one can vandalize them

Good point!
I regulary use it as start point to navigate into the city lists but it is important to mention that.

29,000 in the UK at a low guesstimate of £500 each is a nice Christmas night out for the local councillors🫣
