Wentwood and Gray Hill

Sunday 23rd January 2022

A few years ago, I challenged myself with the quiet intention of completing more of the walks available in the Walk West series of eBooks (all of which are free to download from this website). I couldn’t recall the last time I had embarked on one of Geoff Mullet’s walks and I wasn’t feeling too enthusiastic about another local walk on the Mendip Hills.

Cornwall has much to offer, in the way of outdoor opportunities and National Trust visits – some of which I’ve covered in the past. I decided to tread on to Bodmin Moor for the very first time.

Completing the Snowdon Horseshoe

Tuesday 17th July 2018

This was my third visit to Snowdonia and, at long last, I had made it to the summit of Snowdon – the highest peak in Wales – at the first attempt of trying.

Having overcome the intimidation of Crib Goch, we would now have to brave the likely hoard of “tourists” huddled around the trig point and this mountain’s other… Attractions.
