Out covering a few more miles of SWCP yesterday, with MrsG and our daughter. Constantine bay to Bedruthan Steps, nice easy section that.


Back on Dartmoor this morning getting in some final training for the Dartmoor Highground Marathon.  Just 11 miles but at a fair old lick.  Met another competitor, well he came past me and we chatted for the climb up sheep's tor, it will be his third running.  I feel a little less crazy for signing up now. Lol

Just back from a lovely weekend of walking on the North Yorkshire coast.  Yesterday we did a Flamborough / Danes Dyke circuit and today we did a Cloughton / Hayburn Wyke circuit.  I'd forgotten just how uppy and downy coastal clifftop walks can be!

No expense spared in pursuit of a bargain ;)

Walked up Haystacks today. Supposedly Wainwrights favourite. It's not my favourite but the views were pretty fine.

Hopefully taking a mate up Whernside on Saturday as part of his three peaks practice, if bad weather probably a walk in the Malham area :)

I'm going back to Queen Elizabeth Country Park, near Petersfield, by bus to Clanfield first, then will either run or walk into the park, I've not decided yet. Its the best time of the year, the leaf colours can be fantastic. Halfway around I'll stop at the Visitor Centre cafe for coffee and cake and then decide my way back, either to return to Clanfield, make my way to Horndean, or to finish at Rowlands Castle.

I'm intending doing a walk from East Meon this weekend, so will be looking down on you from atop Butser Hill.

If the weather forecast holds we are going back to the Quantock Hills.  I have plotted a route that is predominantly good tracks and has no fords in an effort to stay out of the mud.

My better half, daughter & myself are visiting the crooked church at Cwmyoy, Wales for a few pics, then onto Llanthony Priory to do a 6 mile loop in the Black Mountains, tomorrow...forecast is sunny with moderate winds...so chilly at the top.

I am so looking forward to it as I was laid up for a spell but now I`m really getting back into things...the Black Mountains, is an area I used to day dream about when stuck at home.. :D
Walking for me is an antidote to all that rushing around in life that sometimes happens.

Back from a 10 mile walk up Bonscale Pike, and taking in Arthur’s Pike, Loadpot Hill and Steel Knotts.


It was while planning this walk, I decided what my final Wainwright would be. Hallin Fell. I still have 59 to do yet, but you’ve got to think about these things  ::)
Walking is the world’s oldest exercise and today’s modern medicine.

Out tor bagging today.  What a beautiful day it was too.  That was an unexpected treat, sun and a pleasant cooling breeze all day long.  Amazing how pretty the old Imiris workings are now.  Not walked across the site very much and not that route before.

We just managed a local one near to Winscombe in Somerset - Not quite at Crook Peak. Still got 5¼ miles in though with a nice lunch stop in a disused quarry. Was much prettier than it sounds!

Wizzed up Roughtor and Brown Willie yesterday.  Enjoyed it so much, when I got back to the car I turned around and did it again.  Got a few encouraging comments from folk I ment two or three times.


Horrid weather this morning may pop out on Dartmoor after lunch, if the sun comes out?
