Clevedon to Walton Coastal Walk

Monday 17th February 2020

It was the Monday morning after a weekend of Storm Dennis. One week earlier, the UK was recovering from Storm Ciara. Two storms ruining consecutive weekends… I decided to take advantage of my day off and go for a walk.

Uncovering Hillforts?

I read recently in North Somerset Life of plans to uncover an Iron Age hillfort in Weston-super-Mare (yes, really… This seaside town has at least one hill!). Worlebury Camp has been obscured by trees for more than 200 years. By the standards of the past, it wouldn’t make for a very good fort or settlement today.

New Camera: DJI Osmo Action

Over the last two years, I’d been contemplating the purchase of an action camera. Something compact, light in weight, mostly waterproof durable and capable of accepting an external microphone, which is one of the few drawbacks with my otherwise-faithful Olympus TG-4.

#walk1000miles – December 2019

From the end of January 2020, I’ll merely be recording and reflecting upon my mileage with no relation to the challenge.

Plans for 2020

Welcome to a brand-new year! I knew what most of my plans and intentions for 2020 would be while we were barely in to the second half of 2019.

I’ll be making a YouTube video to compliment this one and, as I took all of the photos on my phone, you’ll have to forgive the social media-friendly portrait orientation!
