I've decided to keep a fuller record of my walking. As I want to record my walks in words and photographs, I've decided to do so in the form of web pages. It's quick and easy to create linked pages that I like the look of (thanks to CSS) and the record will be as immune to technological change as any electronic record can be (because I make my pages W3C standards compliant). And having created the web pages, I might as well publish them on this site.

Amateur blogs are usually rather dull, and of no great interest to anyone other than the blogger. These pages are no different, and are probably of passing interest only to those people I have walked with. However, my aim is to describe my walks, not to give opinions, so you might just find some ideas for walks, or get an impression of what a particular area has to offer the walker.

My walks are usually linked into 'projects' - typically completing a long distance path, but the linking element could be anything, including the walks done on a particular holiday, or walks done to visit a particular type of feature (for example, Marilyns and HuMPs). I've therefore arranged this log first by project, and then by date.

I've also started a page on 'Future projects' as a place to note ideas for possible future walking projects.

I started the log on 30 May 2009. I've no intention of trying to go back in time, so for some projects the log will only include part of the story.
