After a brief spell of biology teaching at Lancaster Royal Grammar School (1966-69), returned to my main outdoor interest as an adult education tutor in geology, in Shropshire. Free-lance as a countryside interpreter since 1980, trading as Scenesetters. Moved gradually into publishing and tourism through publication of visitor information papers. In 2007 moved “across the Dyke”, and while retaining Shropshire publishing connections am concentrating more on geology and its role in shaping the landscape including building stones.
Managing partner of Scenesetters – countryside interpreters and publishers. Project Officer for Shropshire Geological Society, and other geo-writing projects including ‘Walks for Health’ on the Geopark Way. a) Publishing of local interest (Shropshire) books, booklets and geological trail guides. b) Lecturing on geology, landscape and inland waterways; c) Writing and photography on local environmental, geological and landscape issues; d) Countryside interpretation consultancy for site or regional strategies.
