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.
