I’m 1 of your Twitter followers, & you’ve inspired me to do the Northampton Round. As I’m 60 next year, & I’ve just got the all clear for prostate cancer, I want to do a ‘big challenge’.
Therefore, it’s my intention to do the walk in 24 hours if I can, & get sponsors etc.
My question is- do you know of a full map of the route I can access to mark on my os maps (all3 of them)?
I’ve just found your breakdown of your route on your site, & that will be very helpful- thank you.
My contact is email@example.com. @FramingTrev. 07790-774440
Wow – that’s great news! Have sent you an email
Tackled your Kinewell Lake walk today (Thursday). We’d been to Kinewell before but not the extension along the river to Woodford Mill. Most enjoyable.
You were wise to recommend wellies as I think the 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse had recently passed by the river stretch!
We were blessed with some watery sunshine too!
Maybe see you at the Worcester game.

Glad you enjoyed it – yes, see you Saturday
Hi. Walk 92 looks lovely. Thought you might like to know that Old Barrack Yard, London, is where some iconic scenes from A Christmas Carol (the 1951 Alistair Sim version) were filmed. In particular, the end scene where Scrooge carries Tiny Tim under the arch. See the Filming Locations entry on IMDB.com: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0044008/locations
Thanks for that info Peter – I’ll add your comments into the walk
Yes, I love walking round London & exploring so many unknown areas & facts
Hi, I am looking to Nordic Walk a circular 5km route from Leicester Cathedral at the start of September any suggestions?
We don’t have one specific 5k walk that starts from the cathedral, but both of the attached, which you could combine do include it. Hope that helps & enjoy. Kind regards. Dave
Re the Collyweston Walk. Thank you for including our village. A couple of small alterations if possible please. There were 3 cottages next to the Collyweston Slater. The building with the horse shoe used to be a forge. St Andrews Church contains an exhibition about Collyweston’s Royal Palace in The Lady Chapel which is open every day. The Village Shop on the High Street is run by Volunteers for the benefit of the Community and sells snacks, fresh sandwiches, hot and cold drinks, locally sourced products, etc. It is open 7 days a week and offers a warm welcome. 😊
Hi Sandra & thanks for passing on the information about your beautiful village.
I’ve updated the blog with your comments & have also included a stock photo of the church plus one that I took of the shop.
Many thanks once again & I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures.
Hi, I heard your piece on the radio asking for walks from your door step. I have 6 walks in an around Broughton here https://broughtonbystander.wordpress.com/walks/ .
Hiya – how fabulous. Would you like us to pop them on our blog – with full accreditation etc to yourself etc? Thanks Dave
Absolutely, help yourself 👍
Do you know what. You blog is fab, so rather than change anything, how’s about I do a great intro / build up for you & then we’ll just post the link straight to your blog – then you get the traffic as well. We could do one say every couple of nights if that ok. You should see an increase in traffic hopefully
Thanks for the compliment Dave. I’m happy with whatever approach you think would work best to get the walks to a wider audience. If it increases traffic it might encourage me to update the blog more frequently, Most of the route descriptions were written back in 2012 and I’ve only been writing sporadically in recent years.
Thanks – Stephen (The Bystander)
However it has been a while since I wrote (or walked) some of them so they may need updating. I’ll let you know of any updates as and when.
We have done a few of the walks but not being locals, a map showing the walks would be really useful.
