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.

(Part): Polegate to Eastbourne, Part 1.24/5/10.

Around 12 miles of walking from inland Sussex to the sea; firstly, across farmland to the smuggling village of Jevington before ascending onto the South Downs.

Amberley to Arundel. 23/7/12.

A fine 14 miles of walking in The South Downs area, covering some different territory to Book 1, Walk 32, though with some unavoidable, reverse repetition. Starting out from Amberley station, the walker is soon crossing over the River Arun, a regular companion today, for the riverside walk into Arundel Park. This is familiar terrain from Book 1, Walk 32, though in reverse. Lunch is had in Arundel, where there are numerous possibilities. After lunch, the walk crosses back over The Arun, through the small villages of Wepham and Burpham and then follows the valley back into Amberley. Thereafter, it's more valley walking, with some delightful scenery, for the return into Arundel. A great walk, with some wonderful views, aided and abetted by some lovely weather today. Has the potential to be very muddy in places, and had some very overgrown sections today. Might be useful to wear some midge cream in season as this is their homeland!

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!).

Garston to St Albans. 20/12/10.

Around 8.5 miles of walking in the south western corner of Hertfordshire; leaving Garston, the walker soon enters Bricket Wood Common, then passing by Munden House and Netherwylde Farm. The walker follows Ver Valley Walk arrows in the afternoon as the walk follows the Ver (from whence Verulamium got its name) and its water meadows into St Albans. Not a bad walk (though the snowy scenes helped!) considering its proximity to urban areas and motorways.

Guildford to Gomshall, Part 2. 27/9/10.

Part 2 continues after lunch with a climb up onto The Downs, walking along The North Downs Way, before descending into Gomshall.

Hurst Green to Chiddingstone Causeway. 23/4/11.

A delightful walk! Just 30 minutes on the train and you're ready to undertake this wonderful 13 miler, mainly following the Greensand Way. The weather, and the aroma produced by the bluebells, helped form my judgement but the scenery would be fantastic at any time of the year. Predominantly woodland walking (helpful on hot, sunny days) there's also some great Southerly views from the Downs, and some classic Wealden meadow walking in the afternoon. Though desert-like conditions underfoot for this walker, this could be a muddy walk in places 'in season'. (Believe the blue flower in this video that I couldn't identify was a Wood Forget-me-Not and, of course, the white flower early on wasn't Anemone but Ramsons).

Netley to Botley, Part 2. 21/11/10.

Continuing on after lunch along the Eastern side of the Hamble, through the marinas and the mudflats (great for birds!) on to Lower Swanwick. From there, it's back onto the other bank to pass through the fields and woodlands of the council-run Manor Farm, reaching Botley shortly after. (Some wind interference from a chilly Northerly!).

Otford Circular via Shoreham. 21/3/18.

A short walk of around 8.5 miles in the Darent Valley, Kent. There's a nice mix of woodland, river and fine views, despite the short distance. There's a nice hill climb to get the heart going early on; a pleasant woodland section into Magpie Bottom nature reserve and then the descent into Shoreham village. Then, it's up the other side of the valley, with fine views, for a further section of woodland walking. This brushes up against the M25, down below, but this doesn't seem to hinder the presence of another nature reserve at Polhill Bank, which, again, offers fine views. Thereafter, it's downhill and along the Darent Valley Path into Otford. A fine walk that packs much into its shorter distance, spoilt only briefly by the horror that is the M25.
