Here you can find a selection of walks that I have put together which include Long Distant Walks, Horseshoes or Traverse Walks. Most of these walks are walks done on the Lakeland Fells, however from time to time I do stray away to do walks outside the Lake District which can also be found here

Welcome to sharkeysdream.co.uk

I share a passion like many others for the Lake District Fells ever since I started my walking career close to ten years ago now I have always wanted to share my own personal experience with you.

My main aim has always been to deliver an accurateIdexaccount of the days events from fell, to page where I hope the enthusiasm that I felt on the day also relates back to the reader along with a sense of my own personality which I feel is important as a means of not detaching walker, from reader.

I hope all this makes some kind of sense, please feel free to contact me by using the email address provided at the bottom of the page.
