My name’s Chris Harrison and over the last few years I seem to have done a lot of work designing and compiling information used in leaflets, guide books and interpretation signs. Some of it was in the form of maps, some of it illustration and photography. All of it to do with the landscape.
It seemed only natural then to create a blog, not about professional stuff, but my own ambles and rambles around Lancashire, Cumbria, Cheshire and occasionally Yorkshire. But what I wanted to do was apply the same sort of detail that went into the leaflets, guides and signs so that I can share what I see and discover when I’m out walking.
This blog is primarily about the routes I follow and what you can see when you’re out there. Some of it is historic, some of it ecological. There may be an emphasis on geology – though I’m no geologist – or the walks may just be an excuse to take photographs.
Hopefully as the blogs build up and the number of walks increases, you’ll find something of personal interest and go out there to find it yourself. There should be information on the maps to indicate where to park or where buses stop; places to eat and decent pubs. And if there’s anything of particular interest you should be aware of I’ll try to include that too.
If you trip up, don’t blame me. If you end up being charged £3.40 for a pint of shandy, blame the landlord. But if you have a good day out that’ll be down to the landscape and everything in it. Have a good time.
