The battered, isolated red phone box

In celebration of the fact I’ll hopefully be meeting a friend for a good walk soon, here’s a photo of a phone box!

An orbital walking trail it may be, but the GM Ringway starts in the heart of Manchester City Centre.

GM Ringway: Introduction

Welcome to Greater Manchester’s quite new but very own orbital walking trail.

Three days of walking I’d rather forget about

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.
