D of E training with Lupine Adventure and Harrogate Grammar

When I flew back from my expedition to Nepal in February 2020 I had just about heard of this strange new virus known as Covid 19, but I had no idea just how devastating an effect it would have on Come walk with me UK. Fast forward fifteen months to a wet, wild and windy

Walks in Shropshire

When you think of the best places to go walking in England, the mind naturally gravitates towards the “big hitters”, the Lake District, Peak District or Yorkshire Dales, for most people it doesn’t tend to conjure up Shropshire which is a shame as the walks in Shropshire that we undertook on a long weekend were

Walking in Bronte Country

Few families have had as enduring an effect on the canon of English literature as the Brontes. The three sisters from Haworth on the edge of the Yorkshire moors have become literary icons and draw thousands of literary fans from across the world to the pretty village with the iconic steeply rising High Street lined

Wycoller is an almost achingly idyllic hamlet situated at what is literally the end of the road around four miles from the town of Colne. It consists of a tiny collection of stone cottages,a hatch serving hot bacon butties, pies and pasties and the ruins of the sixteenth century Wycoller Hall, originally owned by the

The Little Things

Well…..where to start…..? 2020 was due to be our busiest year ever, twelve months of exciting adventures, of high profile fundraising events, weekends of Duke of Edinburgh and overseas trips to the Andes and North Africa….and then came Covid and the whole world spun on it’s axis and by the middle of June, when I

Walks on the West Pennine Way

Whilst the Pennine Way is one of the best known long distance footpaths in the country, it’s only recently I have discovered it’s little brother, the West Pennine Way, which was devised in 2016 by members of the Greenmount Village Hiking Group. So, with a couple of spare days in the week I decided to
