This web site is a personal record of some of my caving adventures during the 1960s and recounts some of my favourite walks both in Britain and overseas.
I became very interested in Caving when I was a teenager and began potholing at the age of fifteen. Bradford where I was born and raised is very handy for visiting the Yorkshire Dales, an area more abundant with caves than any other area of Britain.
I did not see it as unusual to want to descend the many caves and potholes so close at hand. I joined the Bradford Pothole Club in 1957 and during the next two years I attended many underground meets with the Club and I grew to love the sport of caving. I now spend my days outdoors fellwalking or rambling.


This video is a tribute to my friend and long time walking companion john Dixon.

John Dixon was a popular fell walker and long time member of Bradford CHA Rambling and Social Club. John walked extensively in Europe and Scotland and had only recently completed an ascent of Mont Blanc prior to his untimely death in December 1991. He left a widow Jane; he is greatly missed by his many friends. I have created this video of John made on a club walk from Malham to Horton in Ribblesdale 1989, as a tribute to him.
