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.

High Tove

From High Seat to High Tove on a ridge route apparently not to wish on your worst enemy.

High Seat

With stunning views of Derwent Water, High Seat is definitely one of the jewels of the Central Fells.

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

Coniston Copper Mines

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

A Monument to Summer Time

As British Summer Time ends, it’s time to admire a monument to someone who tried to make it all happen.

My favourite Lake District fell? How on earth do you decide?

I have a feeling that trying to do so, really is just the route to madness.

At the start of the Limestone Way

Just south of Castleton village, at the start of Cave Dale, the beginning of the Limestone Way is special alright.

How now brown cow

It’s been six years to the day since I saw this cow.

The trail in a tunnel

Trails on old railway lines often go a bit haywire when they reach an old tunnel. Not so the Monsal Trail, which the White to Dark follows in part.

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.

Photos

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?

Equipment

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