11th October — A lovely weekend just passed at Malham Tarn FSC centre with fellow members of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild, which included the annual AGM and awards event. Two grand circular walks in the immediate vicinity a great inspiration with wonderful mountain limestone features such as Gordale Scar and Malham Cove. No greater inspiration the Guild’s extra special Golden Eagle Award for lifetime achievements and contributions which this year went to my good friend Colin Speakman. Attributed to his name a multitude of important outdoor and heritage books along with pioneering initiatives, including founding the Dales Society, creating the Dales Way long distance path and championing public transport for walking.
