Mapped out for John Dunn and cartographer Dr John Dunn map man.

The quirky and out-of-the-way, as well as the iconic and well known.

These were seen during a motorcycle ride in a little corner of Bedfordshire. I was led there by my love of old maps, in particular, John Ogilby’s Britannia, the first road atlas of Britain, published in 1675.

Moments from this particular motorcycle wandering were captured on video and posted on YouTube.

Silesius prompted thoughts Silesius prompted thoughts
All history, all present, all future is the forest. No tree falls there unless man sees.

Just a thought: Fichte posited God as the moral world order, which humanity continually strives to realise here on earth. Humanity incarnates God. The end or goal of the universe itself is achieved through the activity of humanity perfecting it and thereby bringing God into being. (Child of Encounter) John Dunn

A video added by John Dunn for the YouTuber Dr John Dunn on a motorcycle. Eric Ennion's "lonely road".

Another Youtube video, reflective of my love of books, maps, history and motorcycling.

A favourite book of mine from the County Books series, by Robert Hale and Company of London, was authored by Eric Ennion and published in 1951. Ennion, better known as an ornithologist and nature-writer, wrote a topographical book entitled Cambridgeshire, Huntingdonshire and the Isle of Ely. I challenge anyone to browse through the book and not be tempted to rush out into the countryside of fen, forest and riverbank to seek out the lonely places.

I confess to being one of the tempted, and my video is a small attempt to capture the mood of such venture into a little land of open fields, medieval churches, turnpikes and lonely lanes.
