A Constant Ramble
I love exploring and the best way to explore is to walk. Each walk is a journey of discovery: even if repeating a path trodden before, one regularly sees or learns something new. What excites me the most is that many of the old ways we wander have been done so before by millions of footprints over millions of years – as a species, it’s the purest form of leaving our legacy on the landscape, as a person, it’s the greatest facilitator to understanding, feeling, knowing and being oneself.
I moved to the Chiltern Hills in 2016, and since arriving have been driven by a passion to discover and understand this 45 mile stretch of chalk escarpment formed over 65 million years ago. To do this I am going to walk The Chiltern Way, a 139 mile perambulation that offers me passage to discover this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which stretches from Goring-on-Thames in Oxfordshire to Hitchin in Hertfordshire.
I will be photographing the landscape and it's people to gain a unique insight into the relationship between humanity and the environment in an era of climate change. I’d be thrilled if you’d accompany me on my journey.
