A North Somerset through Kewstoke, out to Middle Hope and crossing Sand Bay before returning.
Saturday 13th May 2017 It was a warm and spring-like Saturday afternoon. One of the first we'd experienced in 2017. I didn't feel like driving far so, laced my boots up and set off from my front door. Walking from Wrington, I immediately picked up the trail of the 2 Rivers Way and began heading … Continue reading Lye Cross and Redhill Walk
Wednesday 26th April 2017 It was in May last year that I discovered a pristine path of bluebells only a thirty-minute walk (uphill) from my front door.

Saturday 4th February 2017 I was grateful to be able to do this walk with a friend. In fact, it might've been her idea. It's a route you can find in Walk West and is only 7.5 miles long. I'd already walked it twice previously and, after a brief conversation with a work colleague, I'd … Continue reading Cadbury Camp and Tickenham Moor
As someone who's grown up within a five-miles radius of certain North Somerset villages, I like to think that I now know my local woodland and walking areas quite well. But it was while out walking the woods of the Congresbury Estate last weekend, that I encountered a boundary stone that was unlike many others … Continue reading Congresbury Boundary Stones
