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
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.
A Christmas Carol, Looking for Ebenezer Scrooge
In which I go in search of Ebenezer Scrooge, just in time for Christmas.
The Isis (Thames), The Cherwell and The Oxford Canal
In which I ramble along the river past the dreaming spires and end up two feet deep in it
Snickelways of York
In which I sneak down 48 snickets like a medieval rat in this snickelway challenge across York
London: Jubilee Walkway
In which I dispense with the walk and tell you some interesting stuff about London instead
York: The River Foss Walk
In which waves of brownish green sadness lap at my feet as I realise I could be doing something fun instead
