Professional Details

Short Biography

I’m a retired firefighter with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue after 27 years service. I’ve had an interest in the great outdoors since joining the Scouts at eleven. I’ve backpacked a winding 2000mile John O Groats to Lands End route. I’ve climbed all the Munro’s. I’ve spent some time in the Territorial Special Forces. I’ve walked the Tour De Mont Blanc and the Haute route plus many long distance paths in the UK. Today I enjoy writing for a monthly magazine about local walks. I’m also three quarters around walking the entire Yorkshire Ridings Boundary, a labour of love.
