Expertise

I should be most interested in questions on Yorkshire. Since I live in Yorkshire, I should not be able to contribute suggestions on accommodation and very few on restaurants. On the other hand I have walked a considerable amount in the Yorkshire Dales and the South Pennines and my job used to see me covering all parts of the county.

What do you like about this subject?

I have lived within reach of the Dales and the South Pennines since I was 25 and, although I have travelled a lot in Europe and hope to do so more, I do not know any area that I prefer overall.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I have often answered questions on different websites and this often necessitates learning new information. Of course if I knew in advance what new information I wanted it would destroy much of the pleasure.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

I am in favour of much more control of the activities which destroy our environment - which inevitably limits the pleasures of some who participate in those activities. For instance I think there should only be restricted areas on hillsides open to motorcyclists and mountain bikers - and, to irritate a lot more people, fell runners.

Hi James  Yes, as far as I know, the term 'boots' is somewhat dated - it was used to me in the late 50s when I had a holiday job at a hotel in Devon and it seemed pretty archaic then. The reason I'm not
