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.
A night out with my son in a quiet corner of the Lakes https://wildaboutwalking.wordpress.com/lake-district/holehouse-tarn-wild-camp/
After a break of 10 months I finally dusted down the tent and spent a night on the fells – and what a night it was, the sunset in particular was sublime. https://wildaboutwalking.wordpress.com/lake-district/caw-wild-camp/
Back in the hills again after a break of a few weeks, with my son and dog. A varied and quiet walk which included Slight Side, Burnmoor Tarn, Eel Tarn and a drink in the Woolpack! https://wildaboutwalking.wordpress.com/lake-district/scafell-from-eskdale/
