A part of unspoiled east coast, the fresh air and peaceful location combined with soft sandy beaches to wander and recharge the batteries, Chapel six marches, is my favourite Lincolnshire beach. Close to the Lincolnshire Wolds, this area is a haven for wildlife. Chapel Point, which is just a mile from the centre of the village is a favourite spot for birdwatches too, great for sightings of migrant birds such as the Mediterranean gull and occasionally a chance of spotting seals, I know this first hand, many years ago, and with the assistance of the R.S.P.C.A we rescued a...Read More
Since my move to York I never wasted any time seeking out some great local walks. It never has to be mountains and valleys to satisfy. Walks that enable you to get some wonderful fresh air and scenery, on a whim, you know the kind I mean. Not only is it the locality that drives me back time and time again to these walks but the variety en route around. One minute you are strolling by the River Ouse, then the next you are passing by beautiful meadows. Hidden pondscapes, panoramic views of the hall itself and gorgeous woodland...Read More
The Woolpacks is a stunning area on the Kinder Scout plateau in the Peak District National Park with beautifully sculptured boulders scattered all around, sculptured by the elements I hasten to add. The widely scattered rock formations and boulders are a real spectacle and without visiting in person it’s hard to relay the atmosphere they create on this expanse of peat and heather covered moorland. Views across the Edale valley are amazing on a good clear day, and I would advise a hike up here on a fair day due to the remoteness of the moorland a top of...Read More
It was day 2 of the Durham adventure for Bea and I. We had spent the day wandering in the beautiful Durham Dales. Now it was time to head to the coast for a walk I had heard so many great things about. And they were far from wrong It is hard to believe when you see it, that not so long ago at all it was one big industrial area. Mine after mine after mine, all with their own big history I must admit. Today it is all cleaned up, nature has taken back over and you can...Read More
The Durham Dales, a wonderful place to walk and hike. It is indeed and even more so with your dog as everywhere seems to be so dog friendly. I am sure your four legged friend would never forget all the wide open valleys and countryside being discovered too! After our morning exploits around Teesdale and Low/High Force we too the time to drive over to another valley for the afternoon walk, Weardale! And a gorgeous drive it was too. The destination in Weardale was Stanhope. A great place to start many a walk. Just taking a look in the...Read More
The Durham Dales, a wonderful area to visit for walking…. even better when it is truly so dog friendly. So, it was time for Bea and I to head up there and get a couple of days of great fresh air and scenery. What better place to start, than in Teesdale, a beautiful walk taking in Low Force and High Force. Whatever season you walk the area, it is remarkable. The falls look spectacular whether after lots of rain or after a dry spell. The rover and dale surrounding is a joy to wander. Bea loved every minute of...Read More
