I have lots of books in my office. Practically all are about walking, hiking and mountaineering or on related subjects such as the natural landscape, geography, geology, archeology, history and wildlife. With regards to walking, as well as books on particular which include walk descriptions I have a wealth of books written by travel and walking writers such as Robert Macfarlane, Sinclair Mckay, Hunter Davies, Kathleen Jamie, A Harry Griffin and Nick Crane. I also own most of Arthur Wainwright's works invclude the full original set of Pictorial Guides to the Fells of the Lake District. I refer to my books whenever necessary when planning walks and/ or when visiting new areas to explore. They are invaluable to me.
On this page I list a few of my favourites as well as some of the best new books in my subject areas. Each one listed is read by me from cover to cover and afterwards still used for reference material. Each one is recommended.
