Forthcoming walk events that I'm leading

Watch this space for further walk dates.

You may also wish to check out this website for lists of all walking festivals - chronologically and alphabetically - if you're keen to get out for a walk and not necessarily with me!

BBC video and audio links for walks featuring me

BBC TV Countryfile on Sunday 30th October, 2016 featured me playing the visual presence of farmer Alfred Price, who farmed Birches Farm near Kington in Herefordshire and who kept diaries of his activities there from the 1920s through to his death in 1995.

Birches Farm was managed traditionally and was recently acquired by Herefordshire Wildlife Trust, who continue this management in partnership with a grazier. HWT officers were approached by Countryfile because of the wildlife/biodiversity/traditional farming link. I volunteer with HWT, which is how the opportunity to appear as Alfred arose.

Filming took place on Friday 15th October, and I enjoyed being part of it; the presenter of the Birches sections is Anita Rani. Another crew were filming on the other side of the county, at Much Marcle.
