My walking exploits began back in October 1997 when, with a friend and some of his work colleagues, I walked the Keilder Water Circuit Challenge Walk. A 26 miles in 12 hours walk around Europes largest man made reservoir. Although the location is different every year, this event is one which I have attended every year since.

Although I have done other walks prior to 2/9/1998, it is only since then that I have taken more interest in hillwalking, and as such have started recording these events here in these trip reports. Trip reports include walk descriptions, photo's, grid references & heights, walk ascent and descent profiles and GPS track log route against plotted waypoints. The list below is a chronological list of my walks since 2/9/1998, but the buttons on the left are trip reports which are available. Pictures not included in the trip reports can be viewed in the picture gallery, some of which are from my earlier walks. Also, by clicking on any picture in the trip reports, you will have a larger version of that picture displayed. Enjoy.
