Christmas Greetings

So it’s the Festive Season again.  An opportunity to wish you all the very best for Christmas and the New Year.


Clitheroe Festival – Grace Davies

Grace Davies sang at one of our annual visits to Clithero Festival.  I remember taking these photos  way back in 2013.  If she is the same Grace as XFactor finalist, what a remarkable coincidence and journey to travel.   Such an achievement, and well deserved talent.

Dunsop Bridge

Who would have thought a trip to the Trough of Bowland Lancashire, would reveal a hidden village. The village of Dunsop was built around this picturesque hump back bridge over the River Dunsop and gateway to the Trough of Bowland.  We didn’t complete the intended 4 mile linear walk through the Bowlands, due to bad weather.

What’s even more dramatic is this quaint area is calculated as being the nearest village to the exact centre of the British Isle.   Its unique telephone box is specifically sited to mark the exact spot.  That’s the beauty of exploring countryside areas, the discovery of something new, even if we don’t walk.


Saddleworth Canal Walk

Just completed another Music Video on Uppermill Saddleworth.  Its part of our territory for frequent Canal Walks.  Also interesting to notice how many Canal and River Enthusiasts there are supporting Canals.  Heres some of the reflective views well known to locals on route.

Clitheroe Festival

Whether its a Food or Music Festivals, the two came together at Clitheroe.  This carnival atmosphere was visible from Clitheroe Castle Grounds of the High Street.  Every year the crowds get bigger.  Very popular.

Smooth Moments

Finally produced an Album on soundtracks recorded for my country walking videos.  ‘Smooth Moments’  has ambient relaxing music from 8 of my videos on country walking. Now available on

Healey Dell

Walking and composing music inspire each other for me.  This is one of the views from Healey Dell, the latest music video now on Facebook –

The Huddersfield Canal


Composing and recording music as soundtracks is finding the right style.  With my Huddersfield Canal video walk  it was just piano easy going with the sound of water and birds.

All Tied Up


All tied up and nowhere to go.  Its a dog’s life waiting for someone to return at a Festival.  I bet this dogs thinking “I’d rather be anywhere than at a loud Music Festival, and on double yellow lines”!

Wise Owl

What I like about Music Festivals are the various sideline distractions.  There were a few on display to attract the crowds.   I’m not sure about the musical abilities of Owls but they certainly know how to respond to music,
