Walking & Hiking

Photos and routes from my walking and hiking adventures in Bristol, Somerset and Wiltshire in the UK.

Cheddar Gorge AND Crook Peak Walk
By on Sunday 28th February 2010

As the time to climb Snowdon draws closer (20th March!) we've decided to increase our walks to at least 10 miles. To start off with we have done the Cheddar circular walk followed by Crook Peak as we know the terrain and what to expect.

Swineford Circular Walk

Another brisk walk, this time on a Sunday morning. 5.2 miles added to our 4.1 gorge climb yesterday. We started in Swineford and walked around a few villages and several farms on a circular route.

With our Snowdon expedition rapidly approaching (4 weeks time) we think it's time to start building up our walking. Having started on Brent Knoll, then Crook Peak, the challenging gorge walk wasn't too bad (apart from the mud) and will be good for climbing experience.

Tim & Rob Climb Snowdon for Charity
By on Wednesday 17th February 2010

My best buddy Rob (who happens to be my brother-in-law) and I are going to climb to the summit of Snowdon in Wales to raise money for Help For Heroes. We are aiming to raise £1 each for every metre we climb. Snowdon has an elevation of 1,085 metres (3,560 ft) and the planned route is about 8 miles long.

Crook Peak Walk
By on Saturday 13th February 2010

Part two of our mountain climbing training is walking up Crook Peak in Somerset. Crook Peak is much taller than Brent Knoll we climbed last week and the distance walked was far greater.
