She Walks

17 heading to spendiff (2)

I am toying with the idea of starting a series of nature walks aimed at encouraging more women to engage with nature and feel confident walking in the countryside.  I am not normally a lover of single sex affairs but I have had quite a few women tell me they would love to explore some of the places I wrote about in my book but don’t feel they can.
I walk alone in the countryside so much for work that I don’t think twice about heading out but I am aware that lots of women don’t feel that way.

The walks would not be very arduous and no expertise would be needed just a desire to enjoy our beautiful wildlife and scenery.

Sorry chaps. If I love doing this I might extend it to you as well.

If you would be interested in finding out more or hearing about dates then please get in touch.

  1. Hi there, I’m pleased I came across your blog. I am a twitcher favouring north Kent as well. And often go out walking on my own birding. There is something so relaxing and freeing to be out on your own with nature. There are some places I feel very safe and others ( especially wooded walks ) where I wouldn’t feel comfortable going in my own as a woman and would only go with my husband. If you do arrange anything I would like to come along. Have really enjoyed watching your vlogs.

    • Hi Helen,
      I’m glad to hear you’re enjoying the blog and the vlogs. I’ll try to film another one this week. I agree that there are some places I don’t feel safe on my own either, usually more urban environments where I guess you may be more likely to meet with trouble. I also wish I had the confidence to go wild camping in remote places on my own. I massively admire women who face down these fears and do it anyway. I am planning on running a short guided walk on the 10th August as part of the Sheppey Shorelines festival across the Elmley Marshes reserve. I will put the details of where to book on the blog as soon as I know myself.

      • Hi Carol. That sounds great. I am due to work that day but hopefully I will be able to book holiday on that day. I love Elmley. And go there at least once a week. We also stayed there for my birthday. I also like the idea of remote camping and to be honest remote living. I would love very happily in the middle of the woods somewhere. Easier said than done though I know. Nature, walking and wildlife are as essential to my well being as breathing. Unfortunately I have recently developed Tendonitis in my foot so have got to rest it when I can and take it easy. I’m hoping it will heal soon. Helen x
