The Malverns, part 2 – Worcestershire Beacon circuit, (7km)

The irony of writing about all these gorgeous walks while I'm still pretty much stuck indoors with THE virus is wearing thin. I had so many plans for this unexpected spell of gorgeous weather... first class worries I know. But still. This second trip to the Malvern Hills is recent, and was totally unplanned. I… Continue reading The Malverns, part 2 – Worcestershire Beacon circuit, (7km)

The Malverns, part 1 – Black Hill to Whyche Cutting loop (approx 7.2km)

I am still self-isolating at home, longingly looking at the blue sky through a window that could do with being cleaned.

Circular Walk from Guiting Power, 5.5miles (8.8km)

When Autumn days promise dry, mild weather and sunshine it is a shame to walk along the same old routes and not go exploring a little further afield. Murphy agrees, always on the look out for new smell, the old bird to chase and stream to dive into. Last week, we headed to the Cotswold… Continue reading Circular Walk from Guiting Power, 5.5miles (8.8km)

Cotswold Way part 6, Wotton-Under-Edge to Tormarton, 16miles (25.7km)

I can't quite believe I am so close to finishing this national trail. It's been such an amazing experience... The problem now is that it's getting quite a long way away from where I live and even if I drive myself to the start of the next segment... I still need someone to pick me… Continue reading Cotswold Way part 6, Wotton-Under-Edge to Tormarton, 16miles (25.7km)
