Robin - I doubt you will see any local paths. Google isn't doing this camera work itself. It's lending a Trekker camera to the National Trails and they intend to cover them all. Google then processes the results.
The camera weighs 25kg and is carried well above head level, making balance difficult. The Pembrokeshire trail (180 miles) took 28 days with two wardens sharing the work. The time includes days out because of bad weather.
