I walked on the South Downs to the north of Brighton today, going via Ditchling Beacon and through some beautiful valleys.  One of my favourite local walks   :)

I couldn't go far away as there was home maintenance to do.  But the day turned out so sunny that we went to Wimbledon by train then walked across the common to Richmond Park, past Pen Ponds and down to Petersham Meadows, then took the ferry back across the Thames to Twickenham. It was a beautiful clear autumn day, I'm glad we ignored the domestic chores for a while and at least had a couple of hours in the fresh air  :) .

I was going to do some central fells of the Lakes, Walla Crag down to Armboth, but I've been advised to leave this until hard frost due to it being extremely boggy for most of the year.


So plan b is now a wander around Troutbeck  :)
Walking is the world’s oldest exercise and today’s modern medicine.

I walked from Woodingdean to Saltdean today, near Brighton, taking in a beautiful area of the South Downs that isn't on the SDW itself. Cold but fine and brilliantly sunny    :)

Rather be walking

Up on the South Downs somewhere, probably a round Glatting Beacon, Bignor Hill and Eartham Wood.  :)

Not long back from a lovely, cold, crisp local walk. 


The terrain for most of the walk:

Apart from across this field:     :D



Frosty foliage:



The lovely head-clearing coldness and sunshine certainly lifted my spirits  :)

No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

Walked the Dart Valley from Dartmeet to Lucky Tor & Hotchkinston Tor,  Don't think I will ever walk that again, in the winter.  Much of it was scrambling over damp moss covered boulders, stroon with Ivy.   I don't usually worry about such things, but I kept saying to myself, don't slip and turn an ankle here, no one will ever find you.  Then when I did finally reach Hotchkinston  Tor SX 6952 7193, it was a bit of a none event as Tors go.  At least from there it was a reasonably straight forward, if steep climb out of the valley, to the safety of the Two Moors Way.  If your ever trying to reach it I would recommend a climb down and back. Don't bother trying to climb up from the river.  O0

I'll be adding another section of the Cleveland Way to my "done" list -  Runswick Bay to Whitby, can't for my life fathom out why I have never walked the stretch from Runswick to Sandsend before but hey ho, this weekend will see me doing it. 
Not a complete idiot, bits of me are missing.

I have a Christmas Walk with my group tomorrow, around the Castleton area.  We'll probs be trudging over the Great Ridge at some point!
As co organiser, I'll be testing the groups festive general knowledge along the way, with the first 3 rounds of a Christmas Quiz I've prepared. The final round will take place in the pub post-walk! :D
We're also having a men v women singing competition, so if anyone's around....bring ear defenders!!! ;D


Up in Castleton today for a shorter walk with a few members of the group, as a pre-cursor to tomorrow's main walk!


Have a great weekend everyone :)
