It’s been a while, actually it’s been ions, but now I am back and here to tell you of a planned walk to come.
This May I shall be taking part in the annual Star Trekk walk. No, this is nothing to do with the Star-ship Enterprise, Captains Kirk or Picard! This is an 8.5 miles sponsored night walk around Southport raising money for Queenscourt Hospice. Now in its twelfth year, Star Trekk is the flagship event in Queenscourt’s fundraising calendar. I’m really looking forward to this event and would gratefully appreciate any and all donations to this worthy cause.

Plover Hill and Pen-y-Ghent on Saturday, August 26th, 2017. For most of the highly successful (from a walking perspective) 2016, Darren and I had been discussing and planning another assault on Yorkshire’s beloved three peaks. This has spilled over into this … Continue reading →
The walk of Sunday 30th July. Ever since our ill-fated stay at the rather run down Patterdale Hotel, way back in 2010 (I think), I had seen the mighty, imposing and wide Place Fell through the coveting eyes of a … Continue reading →
The walk of Sunday the 4th of June, 2017 Since vowing to myself to climb the top ten summits of England in 2013…I have done just over half, no less than four continue to elude me: Great End Bow Fell … Continue reading →
