For the last two weekends, I’ve been walking the moors above Merthyr Tydfil.  It is a landscape formed by geology and people over the ages.  There are multiple Bronze Age burial mounts on most summits and the whole area is dotted with the ruins of stone build sheepfolds and small substance farms long since abandoned.

In my last post on the value of walking, and my Wainwright quest in particular, I was two days into what I hoped would be the final eight days of said quest and if achieved I would have made it in 39 days.  As things panned out the final set of walks were pretty heavy […]

I’ve been occupied by and with COVID now for more months that I care to think about and the blog has been sadly neglected.  Zoom has achieved a level of intimacy with my life that I wish to break and the lack of real human contact and audiences is stressful.  Notonly that time is simply […]

With the odd exception, I always enjoy a long train journey.  In the past month, I’ve done trips from Berlin and London to Amsterdam and got a lot more work done than I would ever have managed with flights.  Every now and then I get a chance to make a journey that carries with it […]

Thanks to the combination of Storm Emma and the global warming induced icy blast from Siberia I am stuck for a day in the Royal Hotel in Llangollen. Its one of those hotels that has a sense of decayed Victorian elegance about it, with the emphasis on decayed. But the service is good, the local […]
