Northumberland Coast Path – Introduction

Two people, one plan to go walking over five days. But which walk to do? Well why not the stunning Northumberland Coast?

The Closest Bit of the Peak District National Park To My House

Whilst out on walking the GM Ringway, I took a slight detour about half a mile off the route. Why? Because if I did I could cross into the Peak District National Park at a point that is the closest bit of the National Park to my house.

Need to stop dreaming of the Lake District.

n we decided to move out of London in 2014, I spent some time wondering whether I could somehow get a job somewhere like Kendal and live a lot closer.

The Walks

Walking is what it's all about. Well this site anyway.

So delve on in and read the journeys I've taken on various long distance routes in the United Kingdom, by selecting a walk below:

Rucksack covers vs rucksack liners – which is better?

I’ve always dutifully used the raincover that came with my rucksack. But recently when the heavens opened, I found I didn’t have it. But with my belongings all wrapped in drybags, was it even needed at all?

Use Hand Sanitizer

If there was ever a sight that sums up the age we’re living in, it’s a sign on a gatepost next to a path imploring you to clean your hands.

An epic adventure just to get to the start of a walk?

When getting to the start of a walk, and back home from the end of the walk, can be almost as much of an adventure as the walk itself.

When walking a coast path, don’t forget to visit the beach

A picture of the beach can only mean one thing. Yes it’s time for the traditional Rambling Man Summer Break.

A fine view on the South Downs Way

You can keep your Severn Sisters and your Beacon Hill. This view at Amberley is what it’s all about.

My Books

Don't want to read on the website? Well fear not dear reader, for you can buy books covering the tales of several of my walks.

Photos

One of the best things about walking is all the great views you get to see. So why not head off on a photographic tour of the walks I've been on?

Equipment

Waterproofs, rucksacks, tents and all sorts of other stuff that you may want to equip yourself with when you head out.
