What was your first car?
I’ve been severely visually impaired since I was 10.
What was your first music record?
I think it was Apache by The Shadows.
What’s your favourite walk in the Lakes?
My favourite place to walk is in the fells just behind Braithwaite, which is where I live.
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 Above Derwent Parish Council. I’m one of the very few registered blind Munro completionists. I'm a member of RSPB and Friends of the Lake District.
