Awesome photography. Thank you so much.
What camera do you use?

Lovely website - nice to find people who get out and about rather than being couch potatoes. I bet you read Enid Blyton when you were children?

You should try visiting East Anglia - it has several enthusiasts railways, waterways, long distance paths.

Such a pleasure to stumble upon your site! I spent 6 months traveling around the British Isles 25 years ago, and your travels bring back so many fond memories! I'm soooo envious. You cover so much ground! I'm impressed with how you seem to have your priorities in order with regards to R & R ! My happy place is anywhere in North Yorkshire or the Lakes. Thank you so much.

Used to live in Bush HIll Park and spent many happy childhood hours at Enfield Town Park. I've been in Australia now over 40 years but got very choked up on seeing those pics on your site. Thank you for letting me see my old haunts again (and in a lot of cases they haven't changed

Great site - excellent photos and nice dogs!
In one of your captions, you say that there are 55 Lakeland Marilyns - I'm doing them this year and reckon there are 52 - see and follow link. Interested to find the discrepancy. Cheers and happy walking!

Webmaster comments   Thanks for your message.

My website was correct at the time of that caption, but since then there has
been another promotion, so there are now considered to be 56 Marilyns in
Region 34, which Alan Dawson called "The Lake District". I've updated the
website accordingly, so thanks for that.

I have the 56 summits in Region 34 "The Lake District" as follows, in height

But 6 of these are outside the Lake District National Park - namely Arnside
Knott, Dent (Long Barrow), Grayrigg Forest, Hutton Roof Crags, Lambrigg Fell
and Kirkby Moor. That takes the total down to 50 if one uses the LDNP as the
boundary. Personally I would consider that Dent, Grayrigg Forest, Kirkby
Moor and Lambrigg Fell are definitely within the Lake District even though
not within the National Park; Arnside Knott and Hutton Roof Crags are part
of the same geological formation as Lord's Seat so arguably have as much of
a claim to inclusion as does Lord's Seat.

But I note that you have included Dent (Long Barrow) and Kirkby Moor even
though they are outside the LDNP, which I think produces your 52, though I
haven't done a full cross-check.

I hope that's helpful rather than otherwise! Enjoy your walking!
