Find out a little bit about Peter:

What was your first car?

A Mini van

What was your first music record?

*Thoughtful pause*... Probably, I don’t think it was actually the first one, but it’s one of the first I can remember, a record called My Boy Lollipop by Millie

What’s your favourite Lake District view?

Going up from Ullswater towards Dockray, turning back and looking towards Patterdale and Glenridding. Known as the queen’s view.

What’s your favourite walk in the Lakes?

It used to be from Hartsop Hall up around Dove Crag, on to Hard Crag, then come round and down Hearts of Dod.

What’s your favourite season in the lakes?

Spring. We’ve come out of winter, things are starting to grow. I’m a farmer, so the lambs are arriving and you’re getting ready for hopefully a nice summer.

If you were an animal what would you be?

*Laughs* that’s a good question! Hmmm, I’d be a golden eagle, soaring above everything else, looking down on the land.

Any other interests/ committees?

I’m much involved with the University of Cumbria, I’m on the Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership, as a board member. That’s about it now, I used to do a lot in the past.

What’s your favourite sport?

Ooh, I played for Cumbria country in both rugby and cricket as a schoolboy, so they are two that I’m very keen on. I’m a generally sports lover!
