I’ve always enjoyed walking and cycling off the beaten track. Exploring the forgotten in-between land joining cities to the countryside.
I grew up in Fife, on the east coast of Scotland but have lived in London for nearly 20 years. Throughout my time in London I have explored and photographed the city and areas I have lived in.
A couple of years ago, I felt the increasing need to escape the city and explore further afield. I started going on walks along the Thames Path and found the sights and sounds fascinating. I also found the river calming. Being in the city for so long, without realising, I had lost my connection to the sea. I had spent of lot of my youth along the coastal waters of East Fife.
These riverside walks became almost an addiction and I set myself the task of walking the entire length of the River Thames (in stages) from the city to the sea at Southend. I also wanted to explore the surrounding industrial areas along the riverside. Once I had completed the north side I would then walk along the south side from Greenwich to the Isle of Grain. I have completed about half of these walks so far.
I will be posting accounts and photographs of my Thames Estuary walks on here as well as some inner city explorations.
