I am an author and photographer based on the England/Wales border at Knighton, Powys.

This website is mainly about my work as a writer and photographer, but I have also been a Field Botanist, Head Ranger in West Yorkshire, and, for 18 years, Offa's Dyke Path Officer, covering the whole of the 177 mile National Trail along the border between England and Wales.

I love an old building too, and have been patiently restoring my 1947 stucco-fronted town house for more than 30 years. It's coming along.

Drop me a line if you want to know more, or to buy a copy of TODMORDEN EXTRAORDINARY. There is a Contact link on my Home page.

This photo was taken in 2022. Afraid it's not a real Leica, it's a Soviet-era copy, but what about me, how do I look?
