Severn Way: Sandhurst, Gloucestershire

Sunday 24th February 2019

Coming to the end of the second month of this relatively new year, I decided to head out and tackle my next section of the Severn Way. On the previous day, I’d attended a fairly ‘undemanding’ group walk around Somerset. While it had been be nice to meet with people and experience the unseasonal shine of the sun, I was craving a bit of alone time and at least one hill, before returning to work the next day.

Tarr Steps, Withypool Common and Winsford Hill (Exmoor)

Sunday 6th January 2019

It’s not that often that I get to walk with friends from outside of the Ramblers group. Between working hours, days and our independent lives, our schedules don’t always align for convenience.

But it was great to be able to being 2019 on a walk with two friends I hadn’t walked with since the end of September. Furthermore, we would be travelling down to Exmoor for the day.

Godrevy to Portreath (SWCP)

Saturday 25th August 2018

This was a 13 mile route that I had devised and plotted myself, to lead Brunel Walking Group on what was our second day of a long-weekend camping in Cornwall. As far as the weather was concerned, it would also happen to be the stand-out most beautiful of them all.

St. Ives to Zennor (SWCP)

Friday 24th August 2018

As part of a weekend away in Cornwall with Brunel Walking Group, this was one of the two walks available on the first full day of activities. A longer and more challenging walk (further south and passing Land’s End) had already departed for the day, leaving the rest of us to car-share our way in to St. Ives for the start of our coastal walk.
