Hard Knott

A small but distinctive fell that’s rather awkward to get to.

Rossett Pike

My final fell in Langdale turned out to be one that liked to hide in the cloud.

Crinkle Crags

Five crinkly rocky summits, maketh one rather long fell.

The Walks

Walking is what it's all about. Well this site anyway.

So delve on in and read the journeys I've taken on various long distance routes in the United Kingdom, by selecting a walk below:

More walks

Cold Pike

It’s not cold and there’s no fish on it.

Pike O’Blisco

One of Langdale’s lesser known fells. But that’s no reason not to give it a visit.

Tarn Crag (Easedale)

Sitting alone overlooking Easedale Tarn is Tarn Crag, a fell that offers splendid views, glorious scenery, and so much more.

Planning for 2021

I was asked recently if I had any walking plans this year. It’s a fair question. It’s usually this time of year that people start making plans for the year ahead. Planning holidays is the obvious on. But for lovers of trail walking, the mind may also think about what walks they are going to do.

The South Downs Way – A Sunday Picture Special

Eleven years ago I set off on the South Downs Way. So what better excuse to look at some lovely photos from that walk.

I’m a sucker for an artistically looking cairn

It all looks too delicate. Like a strong wind would blow it over. Maybe even a breeze. But it was good to see it whilst it was there.

The stone bridge of Watendlath

Watendlath Packhorse Bridge is a cracking bridge. But please don’t visit it. I’d rather like to keep it to myself if it’s all the same.

Coniston Copper Mines

Coniston is no longer industrial. But the industrial legacy certainly lives on.

My Books

Don't want to read on the website? Well fear not dear reader, for you can buy books covering the tales of several of my walks.


One of the best things about walking is all the great views you get to see. So why not head off on a photographic tour of the walks I've been on?


Waterproofs, rucksacks, tents and all sorts of other stuff that you may want to equip yourself with when you head out.
