MUSINGS & TRAVELS

Creating this page during the coronavirus lock-down doesn’t give me much scope to talk about any current travels, musings are a different matter although I shall have to self-censor where necessary (there are those who would claim I don’t know the meaning of the term but we’ll see).

What I have realised while sitting at home is that my favourite walking places, both within a reasonable travelling distance from home and on my visits to London tend to be water related. So here is a collection of photographs taken over recent years of some of my haunts (you’ll also see why I took up writing rather than photography). The large picture in the first galley below is of the ‘Mastaba’ a pink floating pyramid constructed on the Serpentine in Hyde Park, London in the summer of 2018. Further information can be obtained from this link ; https://londonist.com/london/art-and-photography/why-is-there-a-giant-pyramid-floating-on-the-serpentine . The others are of the Regency Canal which runs through a central area of London https://www.kingscross.co.uk/history-regents-canal

Waterside walks in my own region that I occasionally follow include;

From left to right; St Mary’s Church, Attenborough, Nottinghamshire from Attemborough Nature Reserve (old gravel pits adjoining the River Trent) and Attenborough Village from the nature reserve.

Junction of the rivers Trent and Derwent, Derbyshire/Leicestershire borders and riverside footpath, Shardlow to Sawley.


Scenes from the tow path, Cromford Canal (edge of the Derbyshire Peak District)

Carsington Water Reservoir, Derbyshire and The Weir, Derby.
