Not Martin but David Leonard BA (First-class Honours). I set this site up to promote a book with Martin Dinham a writing alias. The book sunk but I've refloated the site to record my walks and explorations of  England's west country. What makes it different from other walking guides?  New walks or variations to old ones, more pictures maybe, quirky facts and other nuggets. Might even be funny at times. Hope so. But that's for you to judge. 

My qualifications? I've explored the Westcountry most of my life, including walking every inch of the South West Coast Path at least once. On top of that, I love the place and it's nice to share what I know of this unique peninsula warmed by the Atlantic, cooled by the breezes off it, and shaped by history. There's nowhere like it.
