A chilly evening walk in Fridaywoods 

A 4am start saw me in Stockport by 9am this morning a few miles from a certain footballers appearance in magistrates court and a visit to Fridaywoods is pending. Well I’m home after a 470 mile roundtrip I have a rather nice dinner of chicken, veg and (My favourite) new potatoes. Now Stellas on the …

A wet walk over the Wick 

A brief walk over the Wick Stella and I are off, over the wick for a brief walk. Come with us as we prepare to lose this ground which should by rights be a nature reserve. Look thru the fences and cannot help but think how many houses could they build in there if they …

A quiet start to Tuesday 

Off to Oxford I’m not starting so early today, a quiet run to Oxford but not collecting until 8am, locally. It’s just gone 6am and I’m up and out with Stella, and as I don’t clock on until 7 I’m giving her a longer wander than normal. There are patches of blue in an otherwise …

Old haunts, but good memories of Halstead Essex

Halstead As a teenager the only way you’d be able to follow the river walk in Halstead, would be with a pair of waders on, but then that’s my memories. My hometown of Halstead so much of the town has changed, Electric motor developments END will soon be another Aldi, hunwicks is an old wreck now …
