Find out a little bit about Geoff:
What was your first car?
I’ve been registered blind since I was 10.
What was your first music record?
I think it was Apache, The Shadows.
What’s your favourite Lake District view?
What’s your favourite walk in the Lakes?
My favourite place to walk is where I live, which is just behind the fells around Braithwaite.
What’s your favourite season in the lakes?
Do I have to have just one? Autumn and winter are my favourites. When I remember being able to perceive colours, the rich colours of the bracken and the foliage and the low sunlight. I also like the invigorating experience of cold weather.
If you were an animal what would you be?
I’d be a raven. I think they have a sense of fun, a rather laconic way of expressing themselves.
Any other interests/ committees?
I’m a member of Derwent parish council. I’m one of the very few registered blind Munro completionists.
