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

With David Felton of Inspired by Lakeland I will be establishing a regular outdoor heritage podcast celebrating Cumbria, its people and places in all their wonderful diversity and glory - currently we plan to launch in August. COUNTRYSTRIDE will have a dedicated website from where, once a fortnight, new episodes will be freely accessed on all platforms. It has been one of my long-held ambitions to develop an unscripted conversation with people in their landscape, sharing their knowledge, enthusiasm, connection and walks of lifes experiences. All this spiced with topical discussion, sounds of the season forming an immersive backdrop. Each podcast will have a locational walk and advice on how you can follow in my footsteps. Many of the podcasts ending with a specially recorded folk music session. Watch this space for news of the first episode's arrival!
