Not all my walking is devoted to the crossing of the nations to my own design. This site also looks at a wide variety of named trails, mostly in the south and east of England, which I have walked over the years.

Some are solo, but many are in collaboration with my friend Dave Travers – we have been walking together since the 1970s – and on others you will find reference to my wife Barbara or my sons Matthew and Adrian.

The areas

South. Hampshire, Berkshire, Thames valley E of Oxford, Chilterns, Hertfordshire, London, and south of the Thames Estuary.

East. South of the Trent, east of the A6, north of London and the Thames Estuary.

West. South of the Trent, west of the A6, excludes Chilterns and Thames Valley E of Oxford, then Wiltshire and Dorset and west thereof.

North. North of the Trent, ‘cranking in’ as in Shakespeare. And Cheshire, to get across to the Welsh border, if I ever do a trail there.


Although each index page is live, many of the walks are still to be transferred across from my old site – please visit for more information.
