    Default LTLF Lovely Walks Thread

    Thought it would be good for people to suggest nice walks after I went on a few nice walks this weekend.

    Today we went to Ollerton Pit Woods, very pleasant.

    I love a nice walk in nature.

    Taking photos and videos has helped a lot in lockdown.

    The old pit trails are quite nice here; Silverhill, Pleasley, Teversal, Blackwell, Rowthorne, Skegby and the Five Pits Trail in Derbyshire starting at Tibshelf.
    Sometimes you come across something you werenít expecting, like this lake on the old Silverhill Colliery site

    If you ever visit Stuttgart, the City itself is built into a valley along side the river Neckar. The steep valley hills give their name to the Kessel (cauldron), and the city is surrounded by woodland and vineyards, and miles and miles of trails.

    You can lose yourself for hours on a proper Spaziergang (hike) if you want, circulating around the perimeter of the city:













    ĄI believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialismď

    ĄDon't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.Ē

    Great thread. Here's a route I did on Friday, through Attenborough nature reserve and past the cricket club, to Trent Lock then up the Erewash canal to Sandiacre, back through Stabbo and over the A5-2 and field to Beeston.

    Milton Ferry bridge? Well, itís within the City of Peterborough unitary authority, so thatís good enough for me.

    My favourite walk with the dog! He gets about knacker deep (well, where they once was) and then runs out and shakes, wetting me through. Might take him round there this week.

    Wyming Brook near Sheffield is worth the drive. There is a bit of scrambling over rocks at points so maybe not great if you have mobility issues. Really pretty though.

    The loveliest I ever had was after being sent very saucy photos all day , I was edging it for hours and had a lot of lube then finished with a juddering spasm.

    If you head up Sheffield way, then the walks in the Longshawe estate are ace.
    And Padley's Gorge is good, specially when the river is running a bit fast and furious.

    Did a proper meandering walk around the city earlier; not really sure why as thereís virtually nowhere open, but it was a good 4 Ĺ miles in a ragged loop for some fresh air.

    Probably one of the nicest places Iíve ever been, hundreds of acres of pine forest too with bike trails and walks. Mental busy in the summer though

    The famous Fernsehturm television tower and the Ganzi-Stadion just for Carlos.

    Theres a fair amount of climbing involved too:

    A blustery, wet and wild trip to the east coast for a Sunday afternoon walk. Sun and snow.

    I think 'odd' is a good thing. Oddness shows originality, uniqueness and a desire to be different from the masses. Oddness is, maybe, only deemed 'odd' by the majority who are considered less odd but only by their own blinkered observations and understanding. Oddness should never be criticised but be encouraged to nurture, develop individualism and to explore the mind rather than conform to expectation and 'normality'. Many of the world's greatest works of art and prose were born from those minds many considered to be 'odd'.
