As a ranger I work mainly in the valleys of the northern part of the Lake District and I look after the human part of the landscape; things like walls, hedges and the like. I've been doing this for a very long time, driven by an extraordinary passion for the landscape of Lakeland(the finest corner of England) and Borrowdale in particular (the finest corner of the Lakes). I'm really fascinated by history in the landscape, the sense of human roots in this boney land. I've also got a bit of an obsession with cartography...
