Devon's Coast to Coast Walk - Day 1

Wembury to Ivybridge on the Erme-Plym Trail

It was back in February that I picked up a leaflet in my local library publicising the Two Moors Way. I recalled seeing signs for this during previous walks in the area but hadn't much of an idea about the route in its entirety. Now, having just moved to South Devon, an opportunity to take on a new challenge had presented itself.

Car-free in the capital

Tips for enjoying London Car Free Day

Newcomers to London take the Tube everywhere. When I first moved here, you could catch me getting on at Embankment to reach Charing Cross – at least doubling what is a five-minute walk above ground. But when, God bless ‘em, the TFL workers went on strike, I found a route to the office via Hyde Park, put my A to Z in my pocket and never looked back.

Caves and cakes in Castleton     

Making the most of a wet week in the Peaks

From the window of our holiday cottage, I can see the whole route. Across the fields to Lose Hill; along the ridge via Hollins Cross; up and over Mam Tor; then a steep descent from Winnats Head into Castleton, followed by a well-earned visit to one of its many teashops.
