I’ve loved walking in wild places ever since my father took me up Helm Crag at the age of seven, and throughout my working life this passion has continued. Now that I have taken redundancy and early retirement, I find myself on the southern edge of the Lake District, hopefully with many years of walking left in my legs!

So why not join me on these pages as I walk through the wilder parts of Britain, sometimes in the company of my family and our springer spaniel, Tess, sometimes on my own, enjoying the solitude of the mountains. Or pop along to WalkingForum.co.uk for a chat.
