Paul is a co-founder of WalkLakes. His parents were cub and scout leaders so he's been hiking since he could walk. Having a mathematical mind maps hold a particular fascination for him and as well as developing this site he wrote our mapping application. He's also a keen photographer and has now deserted his SLR for a Sony α7II compact system camera and an ever increasing collection of lenses.
The path from Keswick to Threlkeld along the old railway line is currently being restored after Storm Desmond. As part of that a long closed tunnel is being re-opened.
WalkLakes recognises that hill walking, or walking in the mountains, is an activity with a danger of personal injury or death.
Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions.
