Weekly Walk #1: The Wivenhoe Trail

I guess it’s time to start my new series of posts. From now on, every Sunday I’ll be posting details of a walk – usually around the Colchester area – with some photos and links included for you to find out more. This…

Off for a walk

Having been thwarted in my desire to walk last week thanks to the terrible weather, I didn’t miss the chance to get out today. It’s quite strange to be out walking again round here after a week in the North, especially when your…

Hooray, hooray, holi-holi-day

Off to the Lake District for a week, so no fresh blogging until I get back next week. I have scheduled a few posts to appear during the week, just to keep my new posting schedule up, but if you want to know…

A hike in the borderlands

It is done

After 74 days on the road, during which I covered 1050 miles, I finished the walk at just before 2pm yesterday afternoon when I strolled into Land’s End, after a short 11 mile trip from Penzance via St Buryan and Sennen Cove. Yes,…
