A Walk In The Woods

A Walk In The Woods

As I mentioned in the last post, I have taken to doing a bit of walking since coming back from holiday. Well, I’ve managed to live in Brampton for some thirty three years and yet never been to the Ridge Wood between Brampton and Lannercost. I took a walk, along with my Wife Sue, out […]

Walk, Don’t Run!

Walk, Don’t Run!

  Sedentary is a term dear to my heart. I usually find the idea of walking from the sofa to the kitchen quite a chore and really can’t understand why it’s not practical to drive that distance. So imagine my abject horror when I arrived on my holiday in Paphos, Cyprus to find that the […]

Sun, Sea and Small Sensors

It has been a busy time since my last post. My business arm, Four Counties Photography has been very busy with our “Cadet” photography, creating photo packs for youth organisations.

The Long Good Friday Pt 3, Armathwaite

The Long Good Friday Pt 3, Armathwaite

Continuing along through the Cumbrian countryside I left Calthwaite and headed back under the motorway and back up to the little village of Armathwaite, home to the Fox and Pheasant pub. A place I must admit I have spent many hours in eating fantastic pub fayre and drinking the odd real ale or two. Parking […]
