MY WALKING WORLD David Preston

October is here and the nights are drawing in, I recently made a start on the Peak District Boundary Walk which is a 190 mile route following the boundary of the Peak District, devised by supporters of the Friends of the Peak District. Using public transport I was able to take to bus to Buxton to start the walk and the bus home from Hayfield at the end. A convenient campsite at Peak Forest was my overnight stay. A great  couple of stages with a distance of 22 miles. I am looking forward to completing more of the walk over the winter.

Click on the image on the left for photos of my trip across the Knoydart in May of 2014. A wonderful trip and I am looking forward to another in a remote area next year. Probably be in Scotland but you never know, the maps are out

I am a keen follower of Twitter, a great way to keep up with what's happening in the outdoor world. I am not interested in what Pop stars, Film stars, Footballers and Politicians have got to say. I follow real people and organisations such as Mountain Rescue Teams, Park Rangers, Outdoor Groups, Hill Farmers, Mountaineers, Wildlife Groups, Police and other local groups.
