The Secret Diaries of a Long-distance Walker


Just to update you on my walks, cycle rides and travels since July.

Having acquired a Brompton folding bike, I gave it a run on Cannock Chase and came across a glacial boulder, which had come down by glacier transport from Scotland thousands of years ago.


I went to the Manchester Veledrome to see the Professional Cyclists.

A few days were spent at Pwll Deri on the Pembrokeshire Coast path – walking, cycling and photography. The sunsets and light were fabulous. I also cycled on the Brunel Trail from Haverford West to Neyland and had lunch with Brunel!


My 49th long-distance walk The Derwent Way was completed when I arrived at the source of the River Derwent high on the North York Moors.

I then started my 50th long distance walk the 319 mile Cleveland Circles.


During a cycle ride on the Sustrans cycle path from York to Riccall  I came across the Fisher of Dreams, near Naburn Lock marina. It is very funny.

I also visited the 950th anniversary events commemorating the Battle of Stamford Bridge 1066 near York.


The most recent trip last weekend has been a visit to Alnwick for photography, walking and cycling.

My Rohan clothing was great for such a variety of activities and weathers, although you don’t do chain mail – yet!
