Breaking records

31 months ago
County Way, Trowbridge
Summer 2016 is almost over, and I got into a routine of regular Sunday trips covering as far as I could manage under the circumstances, the main one being the coast which has now been covered from the tip of Kent Photo to just short of Selsey Bill Photo . The bonus being some were guided by the known pre-Worboys signs Photo and then got as far as I could afterwards. My primary aim is extending the distance between the two furthest points on the map. Living in London...

The beach by Dungeness lighthouse
After summarising my winter activities and spring plans, I can now update with the good news (for me anyway) after a couple of weeks of long days I took my first long trip, extending my gap between points by almost ten miles. I used a ruler on the map to measure where I could go, and at the time the shortest journey was to Kent as opposite Cheltenham, either Dover (the longest) or Dungeness, which was a lot easier.

Beddington to West Wickham and back via Beckenham

85 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...
