2019 – A Great Year of Walking

A review of my walks in 2019 on my YouTube channel – a fantastic year of hiking.

From river walks along the Tyburn, Roding, Thames, Philley Brook, Ching, Dagenham Brook, Hogsmill, Crouch, and Lea to the woodlands of Epping Forest and the wide open spaces of Wimbledon Common and Wanstead Park. The London Loop featured large as I covered the sections from Moor Park to Ewell. I walked the first stage of the Essex Way from Epping to Ongar. I strolled the East London streets of Old East and West Ham, the beautiful porticos in Modena, Italy. And every step of the way you were there – Thank you so much for joining an amazing year of walking in 2019.

There’s more to come in 2020!

    It’s us, your ‘companions of the road’ who should thank you, John, for inviting us to join you on your walks. You make them such wonderful experiences. I sometimes find myself about to make a comment or ask a question and then realise that, with the vast distance that separates us, I would have to shout very loud indeed from down here in Australia. My favourites – perhaps the W. G. Sebald walk (loved ‘The Rings of Saturn’) and the recent Thames Path come to mind but it’s a hard choice to make. Thanks heaps mate and best wishes for 2020. I’m looking forward to more great walking experiences.
