Kingscote and Nailsworth Walk

Sunday 8th January 2017

One day after a mist and mud experience on the Somerset Levels, I drove north for a walk in the Cotswolds with an urbanised beginning.

This route is available in Walk West Again; created by Geoff Mullett and free to download from this site.

Kelston Round Walk

When I first heard of ‘Kelston Round’, I assumed it was some kind of circular walk; perhaps even the focus of an annual fundraising event. It was only about six months ago that I learned it’s solely the name of a hill near Bath. So, yesterday, I went off to explore it.

If you’re interested to know the exact route, you can find it as Walk 22 of Geoff Mullett’s Walk West Again eBook.

Walk Wet

It’s about time I told you of the wet walk I endured last Sunday, in the hope that this coming weekend will bring, well… Let’s just say a lot less rain!

Severn Mud.

With a couple of print-outs from Walk West Again, I decided to headed out to Severn Beach, which is within walking distance of the Second Severn Crossing bridging England to Wales (via. a toll road). It was forecast to be a cloudy or rainy day, depending on where you looked for a forecast.

Blaise Castle Walk

I’m going to take you back almost two weeks to a walk I did on one of my rare-but-recent days off work. Bristol‘s Blaise Castle Estate is significant to me for childhood memories of school trips and nostalgia; but also because, one year ago, it was the first place I visited when I decided to start walking on my own.

Last Sunday, as you may have already seen; I led the walking group for the third time. Now, I’m a bit stuck for ideas on where I could take them next but I have entertained thoughts about involving Blaise Castle. As fortune would have it, there’s a six-mile walk you can follow in Geoff Mullett’s Walk West Again. So, on this day, I decided to take a look at how the route pans out for myself.
