Lavenham and backroads to Semer

Dead tree in pond near Semer Gate Farm, 4 years later
I decided to record a short trip, following back roads, between the pretty Suffolk village of Lavenham and the site of the first pic I uploaded to geograph of a dead tree in a pond near Semer. I decided to take at least one photo in each grid square I went through on the trip. Although I did the trip in a car, it would be an easy bike ride through small roads in the south Suffolk countryside. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page...

Following the 102 bus

Sainsburys on Hall Lane, Chingford
The 102 bus used to pass the bottom of my road in Finchley heading to Chingford Mount (now cut to Edmonton), but had never actually been there, and only to Chingford once in memory, so to celebrate the opening of the new dual carriageway section on the North Circular Road just beforehand headed east to Chingford and beyond until it got dark. Being near the shortest day this was around 4pm otherwise I would have got a bit further. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page...

North to Bedfordshire

Clay Hall Road, Kensworth
I was alerted to a pre-Worboys direction sign in Markyate (I collect photos of them) and somewhere I'd never been before as off the beaten track. Once collected I carried on west into the countryside and got some nice views of the Chiltern Hills on the Bedfordshire borders before heading back home to North London.

Deepest Surrey

A trip from the A25 in Betchworth to Rusper, and return to Dorking. I try and return on a different route to double the map coverage. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page LinkExternal link . After a while you get to know the good roads, and once checked the personal map see the furthest I can get before it gets dark or I run out of steam. The A25 is a backbone along the North Downs, and alongside the M25 serve to allow...

Beddington to West Wickham and back via Beckenham

84 months ago
A trip through some of my favourite parts of South London, from the modern urban centre of Croydon to the leafy backwaters of West Wickham and Eden Park. It was a Sunday (deliberate) and besides a few roadworks had an absolutely free run in both directions from my weekend base in Richmond. I had made the same trip in 2009 to get an old road sign but only took a few other photos en route as was in a hurry that day. I have retraced the route to fill the whole trip in from start to finish. You...
