Tom Whittaker - Personal Pages


Main Interests 

Coastal Walking - I have an ambition to walk around the coast of England in stages.  I have now passed the half way point and shall be providing details of my achievements and plans on this website.  Before setting out on your journeys, please read what I have to say about planning and safety, before continuing to The Routes.

Between 2 and 8 May 2008, I walked with my wife between Welcombe Mouth and Bucks Mills while on holiday in North Devon.

My last walks were Alnmouth to Amble (27 May 2008) and Newbiggin to South Shields (28 May 2008).

The next walks will be on 1 July 2008 from Folkestone to Lydd and, on 2 July 2008, from Lydd to Rye. 

Genealogy -  For many years I have been researching my family history.  The results have been published on a separate website.  Research goes back as far as 1601, but there are a number of "dead ends", including my own family name that I would like to resolve.






Singing - My wife and I love singing and have given concerts in our local area as soloists and duetists.

We both also belong to a vocal quartet called "Mosaic" which entertains locally. 

I am a member of a small chamber choir "Cantemus" which gives concerts in the Birmingham and Warwickshire area.
