Walking in the Sierra de Aracena, we spent two days in Almonaster la real. On the hill overlooking the town is a mosque dating from the 10C when the region was ruled by the Caliphate. Next to it, is the municipal bullring, used more now for concerts than the corrida.

We walked across grazing land which looks towards Mull, Staffa and Ulva, to arrive on the North East shore at the White Strand of the Monks (Traigh Ban nam Manach). This was the site of a massacre of the resident monks by raiding Vikings in C9. A solitary oystercatcher was the only sign of life on a cloudy day.

Now a peaceful park in Chiswick, Turnham Green village was a battle site in the First English Civil War on 13 November 1642. King Charles was approaching London to be faced near the village by over 20,000 London soldiers, hastily assembled to defend the way into the city. Charles is said to have made a grave strategic mistake by withdrawing, rather than diverting to meet up with reinforcements in Kent. He retreated first to Hounslow, then Reading. This is reputed to be the battle site closest to the centre of London during the war, although it is also said a battle barely happened here at all.

One of many paintings made after walking part of Hadrian’s Wall in Northumberland. Here, the wall snakes up the crags on its way eastwards to the lake of Crag Lough. There are wonderful views north and south from the crag at this point.

An impressively active volcano in the Tongariro range. This is a view from the road leading to the delightful Chateau Tongariro in the central plateau of New Zealand’s north island. Probably the most active volcano in the island, it has great walking and it also featured as “Mount Doom” in Lord of the Rings

This spectacular landmark on the Suffolk coast is now scheduled for demolition. Two fierce storms in February 2020 took away much of the surrounding beach, destroyed buildings and the concrete pathway round the lighthouse. It is hoped many artefacts of its will be preserved.
