Walking Every Single Day During Lockdown

I’ve made discoveries on my doorstep:


Greensitt Batts, West Tanfield.


North Lees, near Ripon.

River bank

River Ure at Sleningford.


The White Pond, near Musterfield.


Hall Farm near Tanfield


A new walk, every single day.

Six Word Saturday

A composite walk for Jo’s Monday Walk

I'm retired and living in North Yorkshire, where I walk as often as I can, write, volunteer, and travel as often as I can.

  1. And circles, instead of those other ones 🙂 🙂 Though I think I did spy one! Funnily enough I think we’ve walked more during lockdown, Margaret. A daily walk has been our saviour in many ways, replacing some other activities. Yes- we are the lucky ones. Thanks a lot for linking. Happy walking!

  2. We’re walking every day too. Making discoveries and trying to find new paths.

    1. I know! I’m ashamed really at how many discoveries I’ve made. I thought I’d done my exploring. On the other hand, I now have a whole network of new path combinations. ‘See’ you on Monday, Zoom permitting?


  3. What great discoveries. Your walks are so rewarding. The pond looks wonderful – what a find. We can now walk between 6 and 9 a.m. and our best option is walking in the nearby eucalyptus plantation – although nice to get out and stretch the legs (and walk the dogs), it doesn’t come close to your lovely discoveries. Thanks for sharing them.

    1. The pond was indeed a wonderful find – and apparently a secret. The deer there are a bit disgusted with me, but I was enchanted. Not everything shown was in fact a new discovery, but put together with unknown paths, made for discovery walks.

  4. Such a wide variety of landscapes to enjoy. I’m beginning to struggle to find different routes that are no more than a kilometre from home but it will make next Monday’s walk so much more enjoyable.

  5. Those shots have captured this spring beautifully. It has been unusually dry hasn’t it and gorgeously sunny too. It’s just as well with everything else. . . . .

  6. You have some lovely different locations around you, how far do you walk to get to some of these? I love that airy woodland. The woodland close to us is much more dense and no real trails through the undergrowth.

    1. I’ve really learnt to appreciate the variety we can find locally. All the walks I do are from the house, and the most I’ve walked has been eight miles from here – five miles is more usual, or even less. We do have some lovely woodlands for walking in.


      1. I live on a hill so no matter which direction I go in there is always a up at some point! Plus the roads don’t have pavements and with bends it can be dangerous, not so much now I guess.

      2. Fog? Mist? Living in a cloud? Wind?
        But when none of that is going on we do have lovely views and great sunsets. 😁


    1. But I think that your lifestyle has made you very good at that anyway. You always seem to have time to ‘stand and stare’ in a positive way.


  7. Now that I am beginning to feel better I hope to sneak out and have a proper walk round our patch, maybe not every day at first.
    You do have some lovely places to walk to from your home!

  8. You have a glorous doorstep! I get the feeling that many of us are reconnecting with what’s around us and finding little pleasures closer to hand. I found a good patch of cowslips yesterday along the main road. A little past their best, but I’ll know where they are for next year.
