#walk1000miles – July 2018

I’m a few days late in writing this month and mainly because I’ve been quite busy over the weekend and busy before that, in keeping up with other blog posts.

A Priddy Good Walk – June 2018

Sunday 17th June 2018

Priddy is an area of the Mendip Hills that I know quite well. I’ll often refer to it as one of my favourite sections and visit it in preference to some of the more frequently-populated areas, like Black Down.

This was a group walk that I decided to attend, having not been out with other members for several weeks and knowing that it was likely to be a good experience, whichever routes we would follow.

Mendip Challenge 2018: 30 Miles Again!

Sunday 3rd June 2018

For the fifth year running, I had signed up for Weston Hospicecare’s Mendip Challenge event. I read that over nine-hundred people took part this year, walking anywhere between five and thirty-miles on the day.

Wrington and Redhill

Sunday 14th January 2018

We’re in to March, at the time of writing and I’ve managed to absently bypass this local outing from almost two-months earlier.

I’m going to be leading a walk in early April that starts in Wrington. I’ve been living in this village for over four-years now and have always had it in mind to do this… I’m currently in the position of looking to move (in the hope of finding a brighter and warmer flat) and feel a sense of urgency to get this ticked off the list.

East Mendip Way: Cranmore Tower to Frome

Saturday 6th January 2018

My first walk of 2018 would be a positive effort towards completing the East Mendip Way – one of the goals I set out in my ideas for the year ahead.

Having plotted a large circular route, I decided to park in Nunney, which is reasonably close to the midway point of my walk and offers ample free parking near the castle.
