Lake District – Borrowdale – 3 Days Walking & Wild Camping

I really enjoy getting out for the day for a big walk, its great to get up early and stretch the legs from sunrise to sunset. day walks always leave me with the same feeling though, sadness that its over so quickly and the need to get back out again as soon as possible. As daylight hours are now increasing the weather seems to be gradually improving from week to week, I though it was high time I dusted off the camping gear and headed out for a multi wander. I was sitting at home and looking Read more [...]

I parked up this Read more [...]

Peak District – Ladybower & Alport Dale

After a relative drought when it comes to walking I decided I would head out come rain or shine today. The forecast was for high winds and also plenty of rain but I thought what the heck, I'll just go for it. A quick call to my mate Andy and the plan was set. We would park at Ladybower, Ashopton Viaduct to be precise and then head up and over towards Rowlee Pasture to Alport Dale. The weather looked reasonable as we set off from Ashopton Viaduct but I knew we were going to get blown around Read more [...]
