Walk Videos

There are over 150 videos of the various walks on this website. Here are a few of them.

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

Amberley to Arundel. 19/2/12.

Another delightful South Downs walk! This time, a shorter outing of around 9 miles. Setting out from Amberley, the walker is soon on The South Downs way for a short while, taking in some classic downland views.Then, it's through a conservation area to Wepham Down, before a gentle descent into the pretty village of Burpham for lunch. Thereafter, the walk follows The River Arun through a Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust reserve; this provides some great views of both Arundel Park and the castle prior to reaching the station. A varied walk of down and river away from the beaten track; a delightful entree for 'newcomers' to the Downs! (Unrecognised bird in this video is believed to be a Cirl Bunting).

Aylesford Circular. 24/4/19.

A new walk in Kent, starting on the banks of the River Medway. This 11.8 miler passes through some mixed terrain, including riverside paths; former quarries; an organic vineyard; field margins; woods and downland; a former long barrow and a former zoo! There is, unfortunately, also a section running alongside a noisy and busy dual carriageway. Lunch is had 4 miles in at the now redundant, St Mary's church, Burham, which is now maintained by the Churches Conservation Trust. All-in-all, a decent new walk, tarnished only by the section of North Downs Way alongside the A229.

Eastbourne to Exceat. 22/6/09.

A delightful 10.5 mile walk along the clifftops of East Sussex; taking in Beachy Head, Birling Gap, and Cuckmere Valley. (Mobile phone quality and wind affected).

Ham Street Circular, 6/3/11.

A 14 mile circular walk that flits between The Greensand Way, The Saxon Shore Way and The Royal Military Canal Path. A pleasant mix of woodland, farmland and canalside walking. Lunch can be had in the village of Warehorne and later, tea in Appledore, which also has a shop that is open on a Sunday afternoon. Very muddy in places, particularly at the beginning where horses share the bridleway. (Some wind interference on the sound; didn't use wind canceller!).

North Fambridge to Burnham-on-Crouch. 30/9/12.

North Fambridge, in Essex, is just 7m above sea level, so that gives some idea of the kind of walk in store today. 'Officially' a 13 miler, today's version was reduced to just over 10, following travel delays... Starting out from the station, there's a short inland section, crossing back over the Crouch Valley Line, prior to reaching the banks of The River Crouch. Hereafter, it's easy walking, mainly along the sea wall, with far-reaching views across the mud flats and open countryside. There's a nature reserve (though not much activity today!), creeks, marinas, and, pleasingly, solitude. Upon reaching Burnham, there's a variety of tea options available. Unfortunately, due to said delays, the inland section to the lunchtime pub (at a lofty 47m above sea level!) was only recorded from a distance, reducing the walk by about 3 miles. A very pleasant walk, if peace and quiet is your thing, though not particularly one for advocates of variety. Good scope for further walk development in this quiet corner of the county. (A brisk South Westerly has affected video quality today, unfortunately).

Oxted to Lingfield. 22/4/13.

Around 11 miles today in some fairly blustery conditions down in Surrey. The initial few miles is familiar terrain from another walk, but is well worth seeing again. Soon after, it's fresh scenery across meadows and then on into Staffhurst Wood, a nature reserve and SSI that affords a fine display of bluebells in season, though not today. Lunch can be had in a recommended hostelry at the edge of the wood, or, in this case, in the grounds of the unusually-sited chapel of St Silvan. Thereafter, it's across low-lying meadows and on to an ancient yew tree in the grounds of Crowhurst church. There's some more woodland walking through Ashen Plantation before the path is diverted to cause some confusion around Lingfield Common. All's well that end's well though, and the walker managed to complete yet another very fine walk. (Some wind interference on the audio).

Part 1: Hunstanton to Brancaster. 21/2/11.

A bracing 10 miles (though my pedometer recorded only 7 miles! 4.5 hours of walking would indicate at least 11 miles) along the Norfolk Coast Path (minus the inland section beyond Thornham). Relatively straightforward though it's not possible to do the 'beach route' beyond Titchwell unless you get the tide at it's lowest point; I did, and even then, one of the creeks was only just passable. A 1:25000 map might be better if doing this beach route. (Some wind interference).

Southease to Eastbourne. 7/8/11.

Approximately 16.5 miles of walking from the remote station of Southease to the seaside resort of Eastbourne via the South Downs. From the outset, the walk follows the South Downs Way and climbs up to a ridge to reach Firle Beacon, where this walker stopped for lunch, due to a late start. Following the ridge, which is well way-marked, the walker soon arrives in the pretty village of Alfriston. Crossing over the Cuckmere river, there's a further climb over Wilmington Hill to the village of Jevington. From here, there's one final climb for some fine views of Eastbourne and the south coast. The walker has a choice of paths for the finale into Eastbourne. An excellent summer walk (due to the length) with some fine views and which is particularly tranquile east of Alfriston. (Wind affected commentary. The beetle seen was a Dor beetle, aka 'Dumbledor'...).

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.

Clifftop Walks!
