A walk from home to Wembury

If I’m honest it took me a while to get out the door and walk during lockdown week 1. This is one of a few nice walks that I can easily do from the house but I just didn’t have the want to walk straight away feeling. I stayed in and did my bit instead.…

A walk around Holne before the lockdown

This was a strange weekend, people knew this could be the last chance for a while to get out. Some despite the instructions went for a popular spot, a well known beach or area of a national park. Myself, I went quiet, more intent on a local pub that might be selling takeaway beer!! I…

Boulters Tor in the murk

Not much of a weather window and to be honest I wasn’t exactly leaping out of bed and rushing around to coerce the boys to be up and at ’em. So by the time we left, the half reasonable weather window was passing. At least driving out of Plymouth meant that it stopped drizzling and…

All around Rame Head

Trendlebere Down, Hound Tor and the Becka Brook

Apart…

A quick walk from Jennycliff

Not much to this walk at all, a mile and a bit maybe if that. It’s on my doorstep though and when you need a quick fix, 5 minutes down the road and you are there. This was the leap year day and I’m not sure I’ve walked on the 29th Feb before. We started…

Twizzle Tree, Bearacleave and the Pixey Copse

Back to the eastern side of Dartmoor again, and another late start after midday, after waiting for the last of the showers to pass through. This was another trip into Shaptor Wood to try and finish off the tors in there, well that was the plan. However I got a bit befuddled in there and…
