Walking The Most Dangerous Path In Britain

    The Broomway is surrounded on both sides by quicksand and deep, sucking mud. It has no markers and no guideposts. And if you mistime your walk, you won't outrun the tide. Oh, and it's in the middle of a Ministry of Defence firing range. But most of the time, if you want to visit Foulness Island, it's the only way.

Meanwhile, in an alternate universe, an irresponsible version of me with a goatee is making a spectacular video that involves trying to outrace the tide on a motorbike, then getting arrested by military police.

So what would the military do if I were to purchase a tank and drive it over to the island? Since tanks are road legal in the UK it shouldn't be a problem right?

It’s like the tides, quicksand, and poor visibility weren’t enough. They had to go and add explosives.

Video idea: North of the Netherlands, and off the northwestern coast of Germany there is a group of inhabited islands, called the Frisian Islands. Most of these islands you can walk to with a guide. I suggest walk to Schiermonnikoog, since it is a nice Island with an interesting WW2 history.

As a small child, around 5yrs old I was "helping" my Mum in the garden. There was a large green bush and I was trying to say "bush", but kept mispronouncing it as "brush". My Mum kept correcting me each time until eventually I got the pronunciation correct. I must have already known that "bush" was a generic word, because next I asked my Mum what the bush was called. My mum then had to explain that the bush, which wasn't a brush was in fact called broom!

Tom, you should go to Tornio in Finland, it a city and municipality in Lapland, Finland. The city forms a cross-border twin city together with Haparanda on the Swedish side. There is a shopping centre which straddles the border and is in TWO time zones, as Finland is 1 hour forward of Sweden. You can zigzag down the center aisle changing timezone as you go from one side to the other!

how odd, never rode the broomway for obvious reasons, but i used to ride my mountain bike on foulness all the time. there are paths along the sea wall and then you can come down and go across country on the marked right of way. you come out near the old customs and excise sports grounds iirc.

I live near a MOD Firing range called Eskmeals, it is situated near Sellafield in Cumbria England, they fire flares into the sky when people are walking down the beach which it is connected to, they also do not allow anyone to drive down the coastal road that leads to the entrance on firing days. It used to be a huge place of employment back in its day, sadly it is no longer like that.
