April 2019 photos

Lots of photos this month, starting off at one of my favourite places in the V&A, the cast courts. Then onto Moel Famau in North Wales. Then back closer to home in Kew Gardens. They’ve currently got a Chihuly exhibition on, which is very good. Then even closer to home, in Richmond Park.

March 2019 photos

There’s been a dearth of good photos this month, despite going on quite a few walks. I did some more stages of the London Loop, the top photo being a bench by the River Colne, near Iver, which is on the route. And this one is from Ham Lands, which is not on the London…

February 2019 photos

This month is all about the walks, as usual, with photos from sections 9 and 10 of the London Loop (Bushy Park, Hounslow Heath, the River Crane and Cranford Park) …. …. plus a walk in Richmond Park (which included a glimpse of a Richmond Park ‘hot duck‘).

December 2018 photos

At the beginning of the month I spent quite a bit of time in the Twickenham area, I know, I’m really selling the area with the above photo. With time to kill, on one of the days I was there, I went on the Three Rivers Walk (if you do this walk, don’t be fooled by…

Thames Path South – section 3c

We did the next bit of section 3 on the south side of the Thames Path today, Greenwich to Thames Barrier. It was considerably nicer weather than when we did sections 3a and b, so some photos. Excuse the mainly black and white shots, the area felt very much a black and white area, when…

A book inspired walk – Alperton Tube to Paddington Basin

I recently read Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie, close (ish) to the beginning of the story, one of the characters walks from his posh flat in central London to an area near Wembley and he walks along the Grand Union Canal. In one bit of his journey, he walks along an aqueduct over the North…

August 2018 photos

I’ve done much more traveling than normal for me this month, so lots of photos, also check out my Bournemouth post. Frieze Sculpture 2018 (Regent’s Park, London – still on until 7 October) Cwm Idwal walk (in Snowdonia, one of the most challenging walks I’ve been on, although saying that, little kids were doing it) Flowers from my…

5 things I liked this week – 11.5.18

1. I have yet to do the next stage of the Thames Path, I think in part because the last stage I did (the south bank central London section) was so bleurgh, particularly compared to the stage before (Putney to Battersea) which I absolutely loved, that I almost don’t want to do the next stage…

Beverly Brook Walk

I finally got round to doing the Beverly Brook Walk today, I’ve done bits of it before but not all of it. It runs along the Beverly Brook, through Wimbledon Common, Richmond Park and along various other smaller commons near the Thames. It’s not, to be honest, the most exciting walk in the world but…

5 things I liked this week – 29.12.17

1. Getting seats on trains. 2. Getting one of Z’s amazing hand drawn Christmas cards (they’re always very personalised). 3. Some nice walks somewhere different. 4. Watching old walking programmes about the Lake District with my dad (I would love to walk there one day). 5. Watching The Miniaturist on TV.
