Day 38 – Portishead To Chepstow

Walking to Wales. Another day spent mostly trudging down cycle paths and roads, as there isn’t much in the way of a coastal path on this stretch. This was further than I thought, so it was a long day and getting dark by the end of it. However now I’ve made it to Wales there […]

Days 36 – 37 – Weston super Mare to Portishead

The coast parts of this walk were lovely, but there is no path for a long section so I needed to walk down country lanes and main roads to get back to the coast. I went so far inland I ended up crossing the motorway. Your browser does not support iframes. View this route at […]

Days 34-35 – Bridgwater to Weston Super Mare

A lovely little stroll, I wasn’t planning on walking this far, but I got to Brean and could hear the bikes on Weston beach, so walked a bit further. Your browser does not support iframes. View this route at Map Pedometer Your browser does not support iframes. View this route at Map Pedometer

Days 32-33 Kilve to Bridgewater

Walking the coast, but not seeing much sea. The first part of this was stunning coast views, but then the path goes inland to avoid the nuclear power station because of the work they are doing there. After it rejoins the coast the path leads into the wetlands at Steart Marshes, then follows the river […]

Day 31 – Watchet to Kilve

It was just over three years ago I walked into Watchet after walking part of the South West Coast Path and today I managed to walk some more. The South West Coast Path turns into the English Coast Path after Minehead and the walking is hard. A lot of it is on ankle twisting rocky […]

Day 26 – 30 – Porthoustock to Penzance

The first section of this was real hard work, a proper rock scramble and cliff to cove hike. Being half term bits of it were busy, but there were still stretches with no people for hours on end. Bliss. Your browser does not support iframes. View this route at Map Pedometer

Days 21 -24 Ilfracombe to Minehead

I was planning on stopping at Lynmouth, but the south west coast path finishes at Minehead (well actually it starts there, I walked it backwards). It was a difficult few days, not because of the terrain, but because I’ve had manflu, it has been a real battle to put one foot in front of the […]

Days 17 – 20 – Westward Ho! to Ilfracombe

The first couple of days were easy, the coastal path went inland to Banstaple along the Tarka trail, so it was all flat along the estuary. For some reason the photos haven’t worked for that bit. The stretch from Croyde was fantastic, a real mix of cliffs and beaches, a real treat. Your browser does […]

Days 13-16 – Boscastle to Westward Ho!

I walk down.And I walk up again.Ain’t nothin’ gonna keep me down. Hard work this stretch. Really hard work. From the top of the cliffs to the sea at every river and stream. I’m absolutely shattered and have my first blister. The tent leaked and I was damp for days. And I still have a […]
