A long walk…

One day, I told myself, I would walk from one end of Britain to the other. The years passed but the ambition never did. I had a loose set of rules in place and a relatively simple premise- To walk from the most southerly point on mainland Great Britain to the most westerly, finishing at the most northerly. In other words, Three Points of the Compass. For good measure I decided I may as well take in Land’s End and John O’Groats too. It was going to be a long walk.

I began my walk at Poole in April 2018. Having walked all of the South West Coast Path, Offa’s Dyke, Pennine Way, West Highland Way and the Cape Wrath Trail, plus the hundreds of miles between these, I completed my walk 152 days later at Duncansby Head, the most north-easterly point of mainland Great Britain. I had walked over 2000 miles and it was amongst the greatest experience I have ever had. There is a summary of that walk here.

My walks continue and some of those trails are covered on these pages. Beside these and some other thoughts, there is a little knife chat, which looks at knife and smaller multi-tool options on trail, also a bit of gear talk (we all like that…) plus anything else I wish to ramble on about. These last may be worth a glance perhaps. Links for these are in Ramblings

More than thirty Three Points of the Compass podcasts are also available to listen to, covering walks on a variety of trails. Also covering various other outdoor and walking related subjects. These can be listened to via Anchor and other podcast sites.
