Walking & peak bagging site
My name is Perryn Biggs I live and work in Oswestry, Shropshire. I have recently got into walking I started with Hadrian's Wall Path in June 2009 which I did with 3 friends and then Coast to Coast in Sept 2009 which I did on my own. On the C2C walk I visited the Lake District for the first time and now I will be going back to do the Wainwright's all 214 of them.
I did peak Kidsty Pike as the highest peak (and a Wainwright) on route with the C2C but will be doing it again as part of the Wainwright 214 Peaks. Other than that I'm a complete novice to hill walking but looking forward to the challemge.
I will also be looking to walk in North Wales and the Shropshire hills when I'm not visiting the Lake District. I will post photos and routes on here and list them on the map and will also make maps available to those who want them.
Due to hurting my foot coming down Halls Fell from Blencathra on the Wainwright Memorial I had to delay this walk till June 2012.
