Another photo gallery added. As it's been a really long time since the last gallery was added, I thought I would include these shots, taken last weekend around a particularly
attractive area in the "home counties".
18th May, 2009
A walk added from further south than most on this site!

The sat-nav file given for this walk is the more universal *.GPX type, rather than the hither-to given Garmin format! All other existing walk files on the site will be retrospectively altered.
18th January, 2009
An ebook of elementary bell-ringing has been added. I wanted to do this as a resource for my site visitors, as many arrive at the site looking for information on ringing.

Tacky Christmas decorations taken down and stored for another year!!
27th December, 2008
Some tinkering around with the drive mechanism for the index page scrolling system!
27th November, 2008

Parts of the site have been down for maintenance. Also, I've changed the way I upload stuff, so if you're an avid site follower, that should explain any irregularities in the past dew days!

I'm working on another two walks, which should appear around the spring of 2009. Where are they from I hear you ask... Well - it's a secret for now! The only thing I'm going to say is that one of them is not from the usual Essex area ;-)
18th August, 2008

Another walk added from the Finchingfield area of Essex

30th June, 2008

Some of my walks (which I've re-visited recently) seem to be affected by crop growth. To highlight this, I'm introducing an outline at the beginning of the walk narratives, called "Black-spots"! Before you attempt the walk, take the information there into account.
15th April, 2008

A walk added from near Chelmsford, Essex
11th February, 2008

Another walk added from the Essex/Suffolk border.

12th October, 2007

A couple of photo galleries added, both from Devon. To see them, go here and here.
11th August, 2007

A couple of parts of the Manuden walk's wording slightly changed after some observations by a site visitor who did the walk. I did the walk today, and agree with them!
11th June, 2007

A walk added from somewhere in the south for a change!
26th March, 2007

At last, another walk from the Essex area! Click here to go right there.

A bit of a small mile-stone, as it's the tenth walk in this collection!
11th March, 2007

Another walk, from somewhere in north Essex will be coming within the next few weeks. I'll keep the actual location a mystery for now though!
15th February, 2007

Sorry there's been no recent posts on the site. One reason is that I need to take some photos of some recently added walks, so I'm waiting for the days to get to a decent length! The main reason however, is that I'm currently working on my biggest ever electronics project! To get a "sneak preview"...
...go here and here
27th November, 2006

Another addition to the photo gallery, from Dartmoor, Devon
8th November, 2006

Another walk added. Where from? Just click to see!
1st November, 2006

Two galleries added in one day - what a record! This is to try and make up for all the time which the site has appeared to be dormant!

If you hold your mouse over the new buttons in this menu, you can find the very latest entries' hints have 2006 (in brackets) after them.

There are more galleries which will appear pretty soon, of some rugged terrain in Dartmoor. Watch this space.
23rd August, 2006

Sorry for the missing photo gallery thumbnails on the gallery index today. This has now been resolved. The problem was originally caused by my former hard-disk failing (which has various knock-on effects!) Fortunately, I had a very recent backup.

Anyway, for less than the price I paid for the original disk, I've now got one over twice the size!

The moral of this story is DO REGULAR BACKUPS (sorry to appear so patronising there!)
15th August, 2006

Amended schematics on the pulsator pages.
