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 fifteen years ago, I have always wanted to share my own personal experience with you.

My aim is to deliver an accurate account of the day's events from fell, to page, where I hope the enthusiasm that I felt on the day also reflects 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 the reader.

I hope all this makes some kind of sense. Please feel free to contact me by using the email address provided below.
