Back on Dartmoor around Swincombe

Well its been a while, but as they say Dartmoor is still here for me. I had waited a week and a bit after the official announcement that we could drive to places to walk. Unlike the Lake District fuhrer, Dartmoor National Park had said to come to the wild landscape and enjoy it responsibly,…

Bigbury to Mothercombe

Well a bit of freedom, but only a bit. No sooner than lockdown was lifted and we were allowed to go as far as we wished as long as we returned home at the end of the day (in England anyway), than the National Parks and everywhere that people would visit, claimed they were still…

Cofflette Creek, Brixton and Yealmpton

I’d had an idea to walk east of where I lived, ideally I wanted to walk to Warren Point, as I hadn’t been there for 7 or 8 years and its a lovely out and back, however I wasn’t sure how to get there. This walk was about 9 miles over 4 hours ish. I…

Wembury Woods, Warren Point and lots of wild

Bovisand and round to Wembury

This one is a bit of a mix between walk 1 of the lockdown and walk 2, making for 7 1/2 miles. I wanted to get out and walk a bit further, see the rapeseed fields again and get down by the sea for a stretch. There were a few people out but I saw…

Cofflete Creek, Spriddlestone and fields of yellow

Different walk today and a different direction, as is the way when you are walking from the same starting point each time, you will get some crossover of walks and some repeated parts. This one was different right until Hollacombe, so only the final quarter was a repeat, which was nice. I also saw a…
