Quantock Hills Hike – April 2018

Saturday 21st April 2018

I’d been asked about leading a walk as part of our walking group’s annual ‘Mini Walking Festival’. This takes place towards the end of June every year, on a Saturday and it just so happens that we will be heading south to the Quantock Hills next month.

Walking Two Canal Paths

Saturday 14th April 2018

My latest walk along the Severn Way long-distance path had led me as far as Upper Framilode in Gloucestershire. From here, I’d been looking to make a return to my car, following a couple of canal paths.

Severn Way: Frampton-On-Severn to Upper Framilode

Saturday 14th April 2018

Following a two-month absence from the trail, I returned to my walk along the Severn Way long-distance footpath, which I’ll be following as far north as Tewkesbury.

This walk would begin at Frampton-on-Severn in Gloucestershire, which isn’t precisely where the previous walk ended but, reasonable car parks are hard to find, as someone who doesn’t know the area overly well. I can fill in the brief void of towpath another time.

Black Down on the Mendips – April 2018

Monday 2nd April 2018

As I look through the photos from this walk, I suddenly remember how dismal the majority of our Easter weekend was, this year. Untrue to form.

One day prior to this, I’d enjoyed a long-awaited return to Cranborne Chase for the day, where the weather had help up rather well, by comparison. This time, waterproofs were going to be essential.

Weekend Review (5th-7th May 2018)

Because I’m still struggling with broadband and/or computer issues that hindering the frequency of which I am able to upload blog posts, I’ve decided to produce a ‘weekend review’ of the early May Bank Holiday break that is now (sadly) behind us.

I’ve had a great weekend and have clocked in more than thirty miles in less than three days!

#walk1000miles – April 2018

It’s taken me a few days to get around to writing this. Partly because I’ve been very busy most evenings; partly because I am still suffering with poor broadband upload speeds.

April came and soon passed. We’re suddenly in to May and it’s almost as if summer is moments away.

Crowcombe and the Quantocks

Sunday 25th March 2018

One week prior to this walk, Britain was again battered by the Siberian ‘Beast’, which delayed the event of what would become and enjoyable and dry day down on the Quantock Hills.

This was Jenny’s second walk-leading experience of the month – the first of which was also postponed due to snow. We’d start from the free village car park in Crowcombe, beneath the western edge of the hills.
