Welcome to my Walking Blog


NEW:  “Bloom Where you are Planted” – an Index of Posts of walks in and around the village of Harlington has now been added.  Please click here. 

My book “The Woman Who Walked Through Fear” has now been published by Sitting Duck Press.  The book describes my adventures during my Gratitude Walk of the Pilgrims’ Way and my journey through life.    My official book launch was on

25 May from 7.00 – 8.30 at Flitwick Library, Beds.

Tickets £1 to include refreshments.  Please contact me for further details:  jackiemcall@hotmail.co.uk

Welcome – and thank you so much for clicking on my walking blog!  I write about walking as a physical, mental and spiritual activity and hope you enjoy reading about my adventures along the way.

You can follow my local walks in amongst other places, Harlington and St Albans, my long distance trails, such as The Ridgeway and The Pilgrims Way and walks in my spiritual home of Dorset.    I hope that you find my comments helpful and can gain some inspiration to put on those walking boots and set off outside your front door.    All your comments are particularly welcomed as this is a journey of discovery for me too.   As Marcel Proust said “We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us”.

Have fun and “Keep Trudgin…..”

Keep Trudgin…….. its good for the soul

      Yes, I so agree! There are wonderful views from the top of the Clappers. I walked the John Bunyan trail all around Bedfordshire a while ago – must get round to writing that up.

    To gain an understanding of the history of Bedfordshire landscape and countryside, look at ‘An Unassuming County: The Making of the Bedfordshire Countryside.’, and a follow up ‘A Certain Degree of Magnifance: People in the Bedfordshire Landscape’. Or follow: www bedscountryfile.wordpress.com. Access through www. eventispress.com
