89/365 Country Walking

One of my magazines turned up earlier this week, Country Walking. Like Black & White Photography, I like reading this publication cover to cover (almost). For me, it’s a combination of reading about people’s walking experiences, lovely pictures from all over the country and quite frequently, you pick up something of interest.

This issue (413, Dec 2020) had several articles that made very interesting reading;

The ten maps every walker should own. It’s not the maps them selves, one of the websites recommended is;


Go and have a look at it, you can get specialised maps such as The Great British Adventure Map or Great British Place names. Or, you could get your own personalised map from the Ordnance Survery at


Particularly interesting to read was the story of the London A-Z and how this was developed and published by Phyllis Pearsall.

Then of course there was the little gem of TrigBagging (which reminds me, I must do a blog on Castle Bagging – I will explain all). What is Trig Bagging? I’m sure you must have been out for a walk and found one; these small concrete pillars in the middle of nowhere for no reason, with strange mountings Trig points; Although the country had been mapped in the 18th & 19th centuries, a more accurate re-mapping was needed. Brigadier Martin Hotine completed the task, giving us these more than 6,000 trig points across the country. To bag a trig point, is to visit it, touch it, feel the environment, and respect the effort that was put into creating this monument to the country.

Time to bag a trig point or two.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
