I’m not putting it off any longer. I’m taking the DofE Diamond Challenge right now. Sponsor me and help transform the lives of vulnerable young people. During 2016 I will be walking the 215 mile (or more) London Countryway. Mostly as a series of Day Walks, I am tackling this almost forgotten route that encircles London but never actually enters it. My new walk, and new challenge, will be accessed via public transport and undertaken alone.
I will be walking through three Areas of Outstanding Beauty, two National Nature Reserves, two Community Forests, a Regional Park, crossing the Thames east and west of London and following (briefly) three canals. I will be passing through Windsor Great Park in the shadow of the castle and through Roman Verulamium. All while (hopefully) recovering from Plantar fasciitis.
