Dartford to Gravesend

I went for an adventure on Thursday and ventured further east out into the Thames estuary from Dartford to Gravesend and then across the river to Tilbury in Essex. Dartford had a lively market and a Wimpy, rumours of the latter’s demise proved unfounded. The highlight of the walk was definitely going under the QE2 […]

All the Minsters

I went to visit a friend in York last weekend. The Friday afternoon was really sunny so I took some photos of the minster. And also nearly froze to death. It’s cold up north. On Sunday, somewhat inspired by All the Stations, I went on a rail adventure around west Yorkshire. First stop was Pontefract. […]

Crayford Ness

Way back in 2010 I walked along the easternmost section of the Thames Path, to a rather dreary town called Erith. Actually the official end of the Thames Path extension is a little bit further at Crayford Ness so I’ve had this niggling sense of unfinishedness ever since. Well, time to put that right! I […]

Eastbourne Pier

I was in Eastbourne a few days ago visiting my grandmother. The only clear day of the Christmas period so I managed to take a few photos of the pier. The gold colour scheme is new and very controversial, the idea of a certain middle eastern investor who bought the pier recently.

High Wycombe to Henley

Here’s another walk I did recently, from High Wycombe to Henley-on-Thames. Nothing particularly exciting or out of the ordinary, but a nice route to do.

Around Aylesbury

I’ve been meaning to revisit Aylesbury since I discovered it back in 2015. I thought I could do a little ring around it along the signposted Aylesbury Ring. But that turned out to be wildly optimistic and I barely made it a quarter of the way round. It was bitterly cold but the scenery was […]

Kumamon Cake

Everybody is so jealous of my birthday cakes. This year my mum really outdid herself with this perfect likeness of Kumamoto prefecture’s cheeky mascot Kumamon!

Return of the Mini Train

My parents took me to the Romney, Hythe, and Dymchurch railway last weekend for my birthday. I feel like I must be six years old again. Luckily this place never changes.

Devizes

Took a few days off work last week to go exploring near Avebury again. On the second day I walked to Devizes which I thought would be interesting but turned out to be rather dull. The main attraction seems to be the huge flight of locks on the canal, but that was a way out […]

Hidden Rainbow

Spotted a sneaky rainbow hiding in the clouds at sunset this evening.
