We'd be happy to include your videos - see the "Uploading Videos" link above.

SWC Free Walk 134, Lewes to Brighton. 29/1/12.

Another fine walk across The South Downs, albeit only 7 miles. A further 4.5 miles is added with a coastal walk into Brighton. Leaving Lewes, the walker is soon into the countryside and ascending The Downs for some glorious views back over the town and its castle, and The Ouse Valley towards the coast. Walking along the ridge top over Swanborough Hill, there are further views of the coast ahead before leaving The South Downs Way to walk along quieter paths into Rottingdean for lunch. Thereafter, it's a straight-forward walk along the esplanade, beside chalk cliffs and past the marina, into bustling Brighton for the train home. (Still issues with watching recent uploads in HD - Youtube advised).


SWC Free Walk 140, Wendover to Great Missenden. 20/5/12.

A lovely, mainly wooded walk, of 13.4 miles through The Chiltern Hills. Starting out from the station, it's not long before the walker is on The Ridgeway path and soon into said woodland. After a good walk within, it's on through fields to reach the conservation village of The Lee. Then, it's more delightful woodland prior to lunch in the hamlet of Swan Bottom. Thereafter, there's a choice of routes, with this walker opting for the longer one to Great Missenden. This alternative is mainly through the fields and meadows of some lovely valleys, but there's also some smaller woodland sections; it is, possibly, less arduous than the main walk.


SWC Free Walk 163, Brockenhurst Circular, 4/3/12.

What a difference a week makes! After the drought conditions of Essex comes the water meadows of The New Forest! Didn't realise a forest could be so wet! This is a 10 mile circular walk through a delightful environment (out of season!) but, unfortunately, the rain prevented the filming of the first half; luckily, this was the less-interesting part as it involved a section of quiet road walking and passing through camping areas. A forest is a forest, so what was missed in the morning is similar to what was filmed later. After lunch at Bank, filming resumed and some of the Forest's highlights recorded. Has the potential to be a very nice walk (out of holiday times!) for those able to follow a map and use a compass, as there are few way marks. (Whole point of travelling the distance south west was to avoid the rain, but weathermen got their timings wrong -again!).


SWC Free Walk 24, North Downs Way, Sandling to Wye. 14.6.10.

Around 11 miles of delightful ridge walking along the North Downs Way. (Some wind interference on sound).


SWC Free Walk 50, Hassocks to Brighton. 14/4/13.

Another very pleasant 12 miler in West Sussex that incorporates a variety of scenery. After a short urban section in Hassocks, the walker is soon on a former Roman road and heading towards Ditchling, with its attractive church. Then, its on across meadows and through woodland prior to the ascent of Ditchling Beacon, where lunch is had, with some fine views. Thereafter, it's on across the Downs and through more woodland to arrive in the grounds of Stanmer Park. Shortly after, the walker is in the village of Stanmer, with its unusual donkey-powered well and grand house, Stanmer House. Then, it's on through the grounds of Sussex University and so to the pretty hamlet of Falmer, where the walk can be terminated, if desired. Continuing on, the walker passes the impressive home of Brighton and Hove Albion, The Amex Stadium, and then on past some less impressive neighbourhoods before reaching the Kemp Town race track. Thereafter, it's on into bustling Brighton and all it has to offer, which, today, included the death of a marathon runner!


Time Out Country Walks, Book 2, Walk 15b, Riddlesdown to Coulsdon South.25/11/12.

This is another walk that starts and ends in Zone 6, yet is pleasantly rural, including some suitably muddy stretches! Around 10.5 miles long, the walk crosses Kenley Common and Coulsdon Common, where the recommended lunch time pubs can be found, albeit rather early in the walk. There are some fine views from a short stretch of the North Downs Way before this walker pauses for a later lunch in the pleasant Chaldon church. Thereafter, there's more muddy fields, with fine views of Happy Valley, before arriving at the picturesque Farthing Downs. South Coulsdon, or in this case, Coulsdon Town (a train was cancelled, and the latter station is only 10 minutes further away) station is reached a short while later. Once again, a very pleasant zone 6 walk, ideal when time is at a premium. (Unusually, the church at Chaldon serves tea and cakes during the winter on Sundays between 2.30 and 4, so is ideally positioned for a tea stop. Great home-cooking!).


Time Out Walks, Book 1, Walk 46, Wakes Colne to Bures.6/7/09.

Just over 11 miles of walking in Essex;the walk starts at a station cum railway museum at Chappel and Wakes Colne. Lunch can be had at Colne Engaine before the return leg to Bures. (Mobile phone quality).


Time Out Walks: Book 2, Walk 8, Marlow Circular, Part 2.18/10/10

Continuing on from Hambleden Lock, up in to the wooded Chiltern Hills, and back to Marlow.


Time Out Walks: Book 2, Walk 9A, A Kintbury Circular, Part 2.16/8/10.

Continuing on from Part 1, the walk descends from the Test Way, via West Woodhay and Hampstead Marshall, to the Kennet and Avon Canal.


SWC Walk 184: Bentley to Farnham.

Music: Skyfall (Top 10 piano)
