Was in the beer garden of the Red Lion on SundayContinuation of St Peters Way from Blackmore to Margaretting ..a long walk over many many stiles ...not great for the knees ..we counted 30 there and back
Nice isolated walk but I was never so glad to see the pub at the end !!
Bless the Red Lion!
Had a coffee and back to Blackmore..a 6 hour walk through forests and fields with some very long grass!View attachment 80479View attachment 80480View attachment 80481View attachment 80482View attachment 80483View attachment 80484View attachment 80485View attachment 80486
We just collapsed at the front of the pub just as it opened!Was in the beer garden of the Red Lion on Sunday
Myself and my wife are sitting in the garden talking about ways of doing the walk, maybe using two cars so we don't need to walk back to the car we could park one at the start and one at the end of the day's walk..we regularly do 10+ mile walks around the Brentwood, Shenfield, Ongar area.We just collapsed at the front of the pub just as it opened!
On Tuesday we will continue the Way from there as there's a good parking place opposite the pub
May get to Stock, or further... and just turn around and walk back
This will be the second time to walk St Peters Way
It's taking a bit longer this time as we're trying not to use public transport ...then again, we're not in any hurry!
A very good ideaMyself and my wife are sitting in the garden talking about ways of doing the walk, maybe using two cars so we don't need to walk back to the car we could park one at the start and one at the end of the day's walk..we regularly do 10+ mile walks around the Brentwood, Shenfield, Ongar area.
Have a great day walking on Tuesday, hopefully it won't rain too much.
Thank you for this, @alansykes. Here is what I have learned today:After leaving my home county for the first time since February, went to a family funeral in Wiltshire and then walked up to the Alton Barnes White Horse in the Vale of Pewsey. A hot day, but a lovely spot.
Can't agree with you on this one VN!This is not a gorgeous photo like the rest of yours, but the shadows on my cloister floor were saying something worth repeating (It's the only time this has happened, a trick of light and shadow because of the way I hung my laundry up to dry):
There was road walking through the Basildon area. But by adding on another couple of miles, you could probably get about 90% paths. I use memory map OS version to plot my walksThat's an impressive walk Mark..
Were you able to follow paths and tracks the whole way or was there any road walking?
They opened quickly for melocal walk, within 2km radius... the canal section is recently opened and delightful to walk along.

I have just tried to see if they will open, and even though I inserted them as thumbnails, it is taking ages. Sorry about that.
It is lovely to see photographs of your bike ride. Some days I find it hard to make the decision whether to bike or walk. Though the wind sometimes makes that decision for me. 50 miles was a long way!I haven’t contributed to this thread much, because I live where there is really no place to walk. But I have started biking and hope you won’t get mad if I post a few pictures from my first 50 mile bike ride.
Laurie, it looks just like my neck of the woods. I walk and ride, too, seeing similar landscapes...the good 'ole Midwest USAI haven’t contributed to this thread much, because I live where there is really no place to walk.

You better! We'd be mad if you didn't. (Well...I'm wildly enthusiastic, as I just have a cloister. So speaking for myself, that is. )hope you won’t get mad

Your pictures are spectacular, @VNwalking. How wonderful that such beauty is just outside your door. You may have mentioned it elsewhere but is it because of Covid that you are confined to your corridor? It seems a bit heartless that we post of our wanderings when you - and possibly others - are limited in your ability to go further afield.Same corridor, same plants outside...but they never fail to wow me. Gorgeous!
And the mannikins are busy with their eggs right now...their nest is just a few meters away and I see them going in and out a lot, but they are too skittish to photograph, so I leave them alone...
Not lucky enough. I wanted to climb the tallest mountain in the range but early in the week the forecast was for possible thunderstorms. You can see in the forecast below why I didn't climb Wednesday or Thursday.Oh, oh oh. Lucky you.
But have you ever heard the apparently not so bizarre theory that an owl committed murder?The sign amused me. I've heard of owls in wooded areas snatching the caps off of early morning runners and absconding with them,
