Doorstep Walk: Sand Point

My first ‘Doorstep Walk’ of 2021; heading out to Sand Point from home, in what we refer to as Lockdown 3.0.

Sunday 10th January 2021

This was my first ‘Doorstep Walk’ of the year, with England having been set in to its third iteration of Lockdown, with the dawn of 2021. As hard as it appears sometimes, I do feel it’s very important to abide by the rules and to stay local to where you live.

South Downs Way: Day Two

Sunday 26th May 2019

Having braved and survived the woodland scene of my first ever wild camp, I was up and packing early the next morning; ready for breakfast and the beginning of a new day on this promising National Trail.

This walk had originally been forecast to last a good nineteen miles. But, having walked on a bit further than intended the night before, I was looking forward to a reduced duration.
