This website is the deposit for his findings whether a blog, or as photos or as a series of documentary videos.

Cycling Around Britain

I am on my bike exploring this fabulous country


Many people who live in this wonderful land take it for granted and forget there are at least two thousand years of fascinating stories to tell. We can walk down the high street of most towns and actually stride past a 900 year old church, a 600 year old timber framed house and 300 year old Georgian mansion without ever batting an eye.
Look no Paddle

Who says I am a drifter?


If you are fascinated by the Roman’s, Norman Castles, the Smugglers of the Kentish Coast, Highwaymen, or the restoration of the old canals, then there is something for you. Keep returning for more updates and videos, including features looking behind the scenes of how the programmes are made.
