I was born in 1959 into a coal mining family in the coal mining village of South Normanton in Derbyshire.I grew up in the village, spending large parts of my childhood in the great outdoors. My book "Where Shall We Walk Today" "Walking The Pennine Way" maps my progress from my childhood right through to,me in my 52nd year, and my wife Diane, completing the 267 miles of The Pennine Way.
I left school at 16 years of age with no qualifications have worked as a motorcycle mechanic, worked in the maintenance department in a knitwear factory, have been a building site labourer and I am now a guitar teacher and author.
