Today's walkitcornwall quote

"My vicinity affords many good walks, and though I have walked almost every day for so many years, and sometimes for several days together, I have not yet exhausted them. An absoutely new prospect is a great happiness, and I can still get this any afternoon. Two or three hours’ walking will carry me to as strange a country as I expect ever to see. A single farm-house which I had not seen before is sometimes as good as the dominions of the king of Dahomey. There is in fact a sort of harmony discoverable between the capabilities of the landscape within a circle of ten miles’ radius, or the limits of an afternoon walk, and the three-score-years and ten of human life. It will never become quite familiar to you". - Henry David Thoreau

Very well organised, full of interest. Delicious snacks.

- Margaret J, Isle of Wight

Free downloads and movies

 Free downloads? Always a good thing.

I write for Here and Now the Cornwall listings magazine, funnily enough about walking. There are a few walks and articles to download. Feel free.

Hopefully the articles make you look at walking from a different perspective and help you get more out of strolling and sauntering. I welcome comments and conversations about all things walking so please do get in touch.

The first was with Billy Joel on stage where he sang and I played “New York State Of Mind”. You will notice that I am now a little more “distinguished” than I was then 15 years ago.

The other was a couple of years back when Matt from Countryfile came down to Cornwall and I had the pleasure of taking him around a few places, one of which made it off the cutting room floor and was on the programme. We talked about the building of a “false Falmouth” at Nare Point on the Lizard peninsula by the props department of Ealing Studios to deflect the bombs from enemy aircraft.

We also have a free guided walks page where you can view a walk on Google Earth with photos of the surrounding area and information and GPS coordinates. Folow them on the relevant OS map and away you go to explore the area. Need some information about the area? Email me at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Now I have also been a musician and composer for nigh on 30 years and it is my plan, now that I have finally purchased a 24-track recorder to get back into writing. This beautiful scenery of Cornwall inspires me and it is time to marry the images of the landscape with some piano pieces. So keep your eyes (and ears) out for some visuals and audio.
