The Yoredale Way

Hard on the heels of my previous guide book, I’ve just published my fifth guide book; The Yoredale Way. This is the second in a series of three guides, following the rivers that rise on the ridge above the Mallerstang valley on the border of Cumbria and North Yorkshire. You can...

The Swale Way

A couple of months ago I finished writing my fourth guide book; The Swale Way. This is the first in a series of three guides, following the rivers that rise on the ridge above the Mallerstang valley on the border of Cumbria and North Yorkshire. You can buy the book from...

Swale Way: Reeth to Keld

This walk report was first published on the Swale Way website. If you’ve already walked Wainwright’s legendary Coast to Coast path, from one side of England to the other, you could be forgiven for thinking the Swale Way is something you’ve already mostly done. Admittedly the C2C and the Swale...

Swale Way: Richmond to Reeth

This walk report was first published on the Swale Way website. It’s not the most obvious section of the Swale Way to start with – unless you consider the public transport options, the proximity to home and the amount of daylight hours I have to work with at the moment...

The Three Sources Walk

I’ve had a fondness for the rivers of the Yorkshire Dales National Park for a while now, I’ve even written a guide book that lets you walk for almost a hundred miles beside, or very close to many of them. The Tributaries Walk meanders besides becks, ghylls and rivers, finding...

Wildcamps of 2016

I’ve not posted anything for the last 6 months or so, if I’m honest, I’ve not really had much to talk about and what I have done I’ve not felt the urge to publish. So as we start 2017 I thought I’d rectify the situation and look back to the...

A Change of Plan

Even the best laid plans sometimes fall to outside influences and it seems that my plans to join Chris on his Cape Wrath Trail later this month have done just that. Chris has had to postpone his walk until later in the year, which left me all dressed up with nowhere...

Alternative Dales Way – Day 4

I knew day four was always going to be the tough one of the four days I’d planned and sitting in the comfort of my office, the day after I’ve finished, the stiffness in my legs confirms this. It’s just taken me 2 minutes to negotiate the stairs! I seem...

Alternative Dales Way – Day 3

I lost my WiFi signal last night, so wasn’t able to post yesterday’s update until just a few moments ago, sitting in the bar of the Green Dragon Inn in Hardraw. Today has been grey and overcast for the most part, with occasional drizzly showers and no sun at all....

Alternative Dales Way – Day 2

Another glorious day in God’s Own Country with even the couple of 5 minute showers failing to ruin the walk. The upside of showery weather is that the cloud displays are normally something to behold and today was a prime example. I spent most of the morning looking ahead to...
