Robin Bledlow Ridge I started this "Walks" page in early 2021, as a place to put things like photos, videos and maps, showing places we've visited.

Tap or click on pictures to expand them, or play a video.

It's taking a while to catch up with all those walks earlier in 2020 !

I've put the latest visits and walks at the top.

Saturday 23rd January 2021: from near the Brickmakers Pub to Chobham Common High Point ...

We visited Chobham Common High Point by taking the footpaths from the south. Robin tried a doze, and June a wig wam :-)

It is mostly the walk that June and Robin took on 22nd January 2021, from where June's dad, Jack Ponsford , played golf, at Ridgemount Artisans Golf Club, Sunningdale.

The walk took us through Sunningdale golf course, Chobham Common, including two lakes, via the Monument to Queen Victoria, and back to the car.

At the end there is a sequence of pictures, showing our walk the day earlier, from the Monument. south towards Chobham, as far as Round Pond, then back via Brick Hill.

i.e. that walk below this :-)

Thursday 21st January 2021: The Monument on Chobham Common, to Round Pond, and back via Brick Hill ...

from the Monument on Chobham Common from the Monument on Chobham Common Thursday 21st January 2021: we decided to take local paths, between Sunningdale and Chobham , most of which we had not trodden in decades, and many not at all.

Tap or click on pictures to enlarge. Our GPS track looks like a Christmas tree ! :-)

Warning Shot This warning sign got our attention, on the way back from Round Pond, through the little hamlet of Prick Hill - Sorry, I think that should be Brick Hill :-)

For those using google translate, the sign reads: "WARNING TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT. SURVIVORS WILL BE SHOT AGAIN".

Robin has a sneaking suspicion that the owner shares Robin's wicked sense of humour, and he has it on good authority, that the natives here are very friendly - even to uninvited visitors from Sunninghill :-) white strip

Here is a photo on Robin's Chobham page, taken in the 1980s. That's Robin controlling Snoopy's camera 'plane. Now Robin asks "Where did all the gorse go ?" :-)

Most of the paths were muddy or waterlogged - but what we expected. Good to see work being done on the Common; We liked that warning sign: "DANGER TROLLS !" :-)

Tuesday 19th January 2021: Monks Walk, between Chertsey and St Mary's church in Thorpe village ...

Tuesday 19th January 2021: Robin & June took a stroll along Monks Walk, between Chertsey and St Mary's church in Thorpe village. They had taken this walk, past Thorpe Park recreation centre, on Sunday 22nd November 2020, but Robin seemed to have lost the pictures ! But this walk was better researched, and they did it from the Chertsey end, checking out that old metal bridge that needs repair. More importantly, they visited the ruins of Chertsey Abbey.

Robin must confess that the decision was influenced in not being able to find pictures from the earlier visit on Saturday 21st November 2020. On that occasion they had walked from the car park outside Homebase. See the two tracks below. Last year's is on the left.

Friday 15th January 2021: Warburg Nature Reserve, Russells Water, Maidensgrove and a Muddy Track :-) ...

Interesting trip near Maidensgrove Interesting trip near Maidensgrove Friday 15th January 2021: Robin and June had an "interesting day" which started simply enough: a visit to the Warburg Nature Reserve, south of Russells Water and Maidensgrove. Before our short walk we checked out the ancient ruined church. June's Grand Mother was born in Russels Water.

Our problems started when Robin thought that the muddy track would come out on a road, and after maybe 1.5 miles very slow progress, they gave up, left the car stranded, and followed the footpath up the hill, to The Five Horseshoes pub. They rang daughter Samantha, to come and collect them, but she was unfamiliar with her Satnav and got a bit lost. Mobile 'phone comms were a bit unreliable which did not help. So June and Robin walked to the main road, and most of the way downhill to Watlington.

They did eventually get home late, after 2230, and decided to go back the next day, with June's car, a spade, and wellingtons. They struck lucky, talking to the right guys, and were able to take a much less muddy private road back to the main road, and then home, via a car wash :-) white strip

Thursday 14th January 2021: Robin takes a muddy walk around Bray Lake past the Thames Hospice ...

Thursday 14th January 2021: Robin took a muddy walk around Bray Lake after doing some shopping in the local Post Office and stores. He was delighted that the lovely new Thames Hospice did not prevent people taking the walk around the lake. The video made with June on 16th October last year is further below.

Robin should have checked for local geocaches, before they left. He saw they came VERY close to that ice house: "Mr Jenningson's 'Fridge" :-)

Robin wondered why some of the sculptures looked so glum - bored perhaps ?

We both wondered what the weed, looking like long grass, was in the water.

Walk near Sunninghill On Saturday 9th January 2021 we took a walk from St Michael's Church, at the other end of our village of Sunninghill on paths not far from where June and more famous guys had lived, or spent time. e.g. Tittenhurst Park where Beatles John Lennon then Ringo Star lived, when June lived in the cottage near the pumping station, where her dad, Jack Ponsford worked.

Walk near Aston Culham Court That nice house that we'd seen the day before, from the north side of the River Thames, was Culham Court .

The new owner, Swiss financier Urs Schwarzenbach, has made improvements. e.g. that Stone-Henge-like construction below.

When Robin saw the new church, Culham Chapel, from a distance, he mistook it for a Greek building, like those in Sicily .

How appropriate that Urs purchased the estate from Sir Martyn Arbib, in 2006, by making an 'offer that he could not refuse' :-) white strip Walk near Aston Walk near Aston Walk near Aston white strip Walk near Aston white strip We than made our way across Remenham Hill, The Flower Pot, Ferry Lane, and our car.

Tuesday 5th January 2021: from west from Medmenham village, north of the Thames, and back ...

On Tuesday 5th January 2021, we took a walk from the village of Medmenham*, into the church yard, then across the fields full of tasty turnips and friendly sheep, then back along the north bank of the River Thames. This was a lovely village and a nice walk, but Robin prefers that along the other bank, from the Flower Pot pub. The footpath runs through the garden of that lovely house. These pictures are mostly the maps from Robin's SpotT2 satcamms tracker and June's Smartphone ViewRanger App. * I remember that the bus from Reading to High Wycombe stopped at Medmenham, during my daily commute to the Technical College. It was moped from Luckley Road to Wokingham Rail Station, then train to Reading, to catch the bus to High Wycombe ! Sometimes I'd hitch a lift home, to save money. Then one day I struck lucky, and then got free transport by a guy in Wokingham whose boy also went to High Wycombe Tech' ! Now where are my old diaries and engineering log books ? :-)

We saw the Samsung UK HQ building, and spoke to others who knew the nursing place - Botleys Mansion . But only after we got back, did we find the fantastic history, that "rang bells" with Robin on many fronts - not least his many years working with the military, and interest in www.nhscare.info .

So we then drove around, past the pub, to near the ford - but June would not let me drive through it ! Spoke to the lovely lady who has lived there years and is into horses - as are my French friends :-) Then we parked back at the Craft Centre and took our walk, as shown on June's smart phone.

We ended by a walk across the fields across the river from Windsor, and on to Eton Bridge. Robin could not resist adding this old Duck-Cam video :-)

18th October 2020: Walks around lakes at Goldsworth Park and Black Park ....

Goldsworth Park and Black Park video Goldsworth Park and Black Park Two lakes Robin wanted to revisit, brought back memories from the early Snoopy robot boat days, and his late friend Eric Wardle.

Eric Wardle Eric gave Robin what became Snoopy Sloop 4, then, years later, Eric's Snoopy Sloop 12 .

Goldsworth Park is where Eric used to sail, including his model camera boat. See Eric's Model Boat page.

After a nice walk around Goldsworth Park lake, with memories of testing Eric's Snoopy Sloop 12 with a MicroMite computer, we drove north of Slough, and walked around the lake at Black Park. We also had a nice lunch outside the cafe :-)

Both locations were full of people, including small children - all keeping safe covid19 distance, of course !

Great to see people being so friendly, and applying common sense ;-)

Robin Lovelock From Robin: It's very convenient for me, that there are so few visitors to this page: just those given the link. See map and words near end of my Home page ;-)

Visit Counter after reply to Microtransat Group The visit counters may give a rough indication on who else is visiting, or has visited, this page. I don't hide or disguise my visits, but they may appear as "Ascot", or miles away, like "Woking, England" (on my Study PC), or "Southend-on-Sea" ( on the Lounge PC). Positions may not be accurate, but times are. These may change at any time, without control by me. e.g. after a power cut, or my re-booting a router. So, you may see if I'm "working" in the Study, or "playing" in Lounge :-)

Not all visits are seen, and some browsers hide location, but you MAY find Revolvermaps livestats for "Walks" page of interest.

The video on the right shows several guys visiting at the same time, after I posted the link on the Microtransat forum to my Covid19 page :-)
