Back To Nature

06Nov17

Whilst I’m an enormous fan of the changing seasons (and the transition from summer into autumn in particular) my little grey cells always suffer from the lack of sunlight available to me at this time of year. The one and only thing that seems to help remedy this situation is immersing myself in the great […]


Back to Ongar Hill (again). This time as a direct response to Tim Dee’s Into the Wind programme, recently shown on BBC4 – if you’ve not seen it go and watch it now, it’s easily one of best things that’s been broadcast on television this year. In Into the Wind Tim walks from Guy’s Head, at […]
