The Far Eastern Fells the eigth and final volume of my Lakeland Fellranger series was published in 2013, with a short film to mark the occasion Lakeland Fellranger. The best of walks end with a refreshing pint, and Dent Brewery have created a dedicated 3.7% bitter that I can heartily recommend FELLRANGER.

My next endeavour this summer is a film with Terry Abraham, where the star is a mountain... HELVELLYN

Walkers are Welcome

Amongst several guidebook ideas I am currently developing one is to harmonise with the Walkers are Welcome network. I am firmly of the belief that the best form of promotion for walking in any area is to harness the energy and enthusiasm of local people. Britain-wide Walkers are Welcome is right at the forefront of this, encouraging locals and visitors to value the special qualities of their own treasured rural realms. During the coming year I will be researching, writing up and illustrating eighteen walks close to Alston Moor, Barnard Castle and Kirkby Stephen. Six walks at each place chosen by local people as representative of their setting, a combination of one mile strolls for pushchairs and where possible wheelchairs and circular walks of from 4 to 10 miles. If it works with this first trio of places then we will look to prepare further titles and grow the triple-town series as a dedicated WaW product - to be published by Inspired by Lakeland.
