Last week I went walking with the wonderful Clare Balding on one of her literary Ramblings walks from Heptonstall and up and down various wonderful paths and old packhorse trails. I was trying to give a plug to my work as writer-in-residence for the Pennine Watershed, but not sure what the Beeb will/won't include in the programme. We had superb weather for the walk, and it was great to be out with some of my writing and environmental pals with Clare and her producer Maggie.
I was also meeting the staff at Mytholm Court - the sheltered housing scheme for elderly residents in Hebden Bridge. A really lovely trio: John, Sarah and Pam - and they were all v enthusiastic about me working with 'their' residents, and were sure they'd have some great tales to tell about their moorland adventures and experiences.
