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…

Langdon Court, Bovisand and Staddon Heights

Another walk from the door, number 6 in this lockdown series!! This one is a bit of a mash of the others to be honest and I’ve saturated this area now, although another visit down to Wembury Woods and Cofflete Creek would be fantastic, this would be a mash together of two previous walks. The…

Wembury Woods, Warren Point and lots of wild

It had taken me a bit of time to get out again, the odd walk up to the local football field aside, I hadn’t been out for over a week. I’m not sure what it is, maybe I feel guilty for living close to open land, where walking is easy. As a result I’m not…

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…

Bovisand and to the Manor Bourne

Another day and another walk from home. This one was 6 days after the last and no change in the weather during that time, I went early and was back home by mid morning, still there was a few people around on the walk, particularly around the Bovisand area, where I met some police who…

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…
