Dragon Hill, Uffington White Horse, Wayland’s Smithy & Ashdown House
Today was the first hike in a month and it was a chilly one. This is the route I walked. Loosely based on this All Trails route. It was good to get out, especially as life is challenging at the moment. One of my favourite moments was watching the red kites, close up, while by…Keep reading
Fortvna vobis adsit
‘Fortvna vobis adsit’ is the Latin inscription on the pavilion at the start of the walk of Hadrian’s Wall in Bowness-on-Solway. It means ‘Good luck to you!’.

Happy New Year: Coate Water and the South Swindon green trail

It’s based on the Coate Water and East Witchel Circular on AllTrails. Here’s my version from today. I decided that in 2023 I will do as…Keep reading
Walking the length of Wiltshire (18th-20th June)
It’s now been four weeks since I embarked on this insane but beautiful 79-miles walk across Wiltshire and Swindon. #WAWS Life got in the way of blogging about it (I was planning to blog in the week after the hike) but it does deserve a post here. It’s my biggest physical and mental endeavour, yet.…Keep reading
