Walking the Anglesey Coastal Path

Leg three of the Land of My Fathers project was the Anglesey Coastal Path, a long distance path in it’s own right that covers 130 miles of mostly coastal walking. I have to confess to having visited Anglesey very rarely in spite of it’s proximity to Manchester with my visits being restricted to a few

Land of my Fathers Project Part one

So, some of you may have noticed that the website has been a little quiet of late, the reason for that is that I have been undertaking a significant personal challenge which I have thought about for a number of years but which Covid gave me the impetus to undertake. I spent September, October and

Walking in Bronte Country

Few families have had as enduring an effect on the canon of English literature as the Brontes.

Healey Dell and Rooley Moor

I have mentioned it already but one of the unexpected bonuses of the Covid 19 crisis has been that it has forced us to look at alternatives to tried and tested favourites. The reality is that if I had a free weekend and the sun was shining and I fancied a walk it’s likely I’d

Kenya with DBS JP and Camps International

Kenya is a truly wonderful country to visit. It’s a beautiful country of red earth and green plants, of friendly, exuberant people and stunning wildlife and we have been lucky enough to visit the excellent Camp Tsavo on three occasions now. Whilst visits one and two were fantastic, it really was a case of third

Walks in Lancashire

When I first qualified as a Mountain Leader and set up Come walk with me UK I was stupidly excited about spending every waking hour out and about in the great outdoors and exploring every inch of the British Isles! As we enter our fifth year (and fifth year of growth) here at CWWMUK HQ

Busy, busy, busy

It’s been a while since I last updated the blog and whilst I feel a bit remiss, the reason is basically because we are having our busiest ever season here and there’s barely been time to pop home and get the washing done over the last few weeks! Not that I’m complaining….There has been a
