London Hikes - Amersham Loop

A view of Amersham town at the start of the walk.
This beautiful hilly walk takes you around the south and west of Amersham and then back. I measured it at 19.3 km or about 12 miles in old money.

London Hikes - Putney to Richmond

3 hikers making their way through Richmond Park
This fantastic rural walk gives you plenty of scope to explore and makes its way through 3 areas of beauty in south west London. The walks starts at the Green Man in Putney - there are a number of bus stops here - 14, 37, 85, 493, 639, 670 and the one I caught from Victoria - the 170.  Putney rail station is approximately half a mile away as an alternative.

London Hikes - Oak Trail Theydon Bois


This walk is a nice and easy loop although some navigation skills could be required if you follow my trail to the letter.  However, there are main paths to stick to which get you round but without some great views which I will take you through now.

London Hikes - Chess Valley


As you can see from the route (above) the route of this walk runs from Chesham to Rickmansworth. Obviously you can do this in either direction - I hiked from Chesham - however, I would say starting from Rickmansworth is the better option.

Dover for the weekend..


Jamie looks for France and we saw it too.
So I had my teenage nephew (Jamie) to look after for the weekend - he likes walking (thankfully) so I decided on Dover. It has the cliffs - obviously, and a castle too. I've never been to Dover apart from on a school trip to France so the experience would be new to both of us.  We have no car so to the train station...
