Patterdale Village Store

There’s a shop that is an important one in the world of Wainwright bagging. It’s not a massively flashy shop, nor is it one that is particularly large in size. But size and image aren’t everything.

Kidsty Pike

Re-visiting a fell, in rather better conditions than the first time.

More walks

Rampsgill Head

Simple to visit, but stunning in terms of views.

Bowden Bridge Car Park (or the absurdity of high car parking prices)

At least you won’t be bothered by cars when you pay homage to the Kinder Tresspassers.

The Nab

Winner of the “Most Awkward Wainwright in the Far Eastern Fells” award.

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.
