Settle, Castlebergh Crag
In which we start #30DaysWild by being out after dark with the outsiders
Snaizwold Fell and Aye Gill Pike
In which we take a wild easter walk into the hills and get squelched in a bog
Dales Way, Cowgill to Dent
In which we follow the pretty path to the cobbled village
Hartslock and the Great Chalk Wood
In which I undress in public, a car tries to run me down and I have an altercation with a jogger in the peaceful English countryside
Wyre Forest, part two: On the Beaten Track
In which I listen for ghost trains on the disused railway and a buzzard brings me home under a grey and rainy sky
Wyre Forest, part one: Off the Beaten Track
In which I regress to my childhood, don wellington boots and splash in the mud. The dog gets filthy.
Chilterns: Wendover Woods
In which I explore the frosty hills of Wendover and discover the least navigable stretch of the Grand Union canal (unless you’re a duck)
The Ridgeway: Ivinghoe Beacon
In which we take an ice white walk through the woods to start the Ridgeway, and find golden nymphs dancing in the trees on Britain’s oldest trail.
Henley, Hambleden and the Great Wood
In which we go in search of mistletoe and sponge cake and uncover the insidious creep of fake cows
Great Missenden to Wendover
In which we ramble through beechwoods and over hills in warm clothes, and meet Britain’s creepiest cows.
