Hinton Blewett and Litton Walk

Monday 26th December 2016

Boxing Day and this walk is set only a few miles south of Chew Valley Lake but on land that seems to be largely unknown to the masses.

It begins in Hinton Blewett and you can find the route I followed on the Mendip Hills website.

Pensford to Keynsham (2 Rivers Way)

Monday 5th December 2016

This was a walk that I had hoped to do a fortnight earlier, but for a surge in heavy rainfall and extreme flooding in some parts of North Somerset and BaNES.

In completing a walk between Pensford and Keynsham, I would then be able to say that I had walked the entire duration of the 2 Rivers Way long-distance footpath.

Wrington to Chew Stoke (2 Rivers Way)

Saturday 15th October 2016

It feels like such a long time ago and yet, it’s barely been one month.

This was my attempt to ‘fill in the gap’ in my previous efforts to complete the 2 Rivers Way long-distance path. What better way to do it, than by leaving the car at home to set off from your front door?

Chew, Two, Three (Part 2)

Saturday 19th March 2016

From Pensford, there was only one direction I would be heading next and that was uphill, in my pursuit of an ideal lunchtime stop.

According to my brief notes, it was somewhere between 11.00 and 11.30 that morning, as I joined the Three Peaks Walk, once again.

Chew, Two, Three (Part 1)

Saturday 19th March 2016

In an effort to explore a little more of the Two Rivers Way, I spent last Saturday on another walk not too far from home (less than a thirty-minute drive).

It begins at Chew Valley Lake, where I was relieved to find that parking at the northern-most area was free – although, a new tariff (£2 per day) comes in to force from this Easter weekend.

Pensford and the Two Rivers Way (Part 3)

Saturday 12th March 2016

One week after my first attempt at this walk, I headed out to tackle it again, having already decided upon a slight variation of my original route. There was a determination to ‘get it right now‘, before I could move on to walking elsewhere.

I’d thought about submitting to lead this walk today – as I write this, in fact – but the thought of walking the same paths for three consecutive weekends did not appeal. I’ve been walking elsewhere this weekend and you’ll get to read about that soon. Now, let’s return to Pensford.
