About me

This is me after completing the first ever London 3 Peaks Challenge in 2014.

This is me after completing the first ever London 3 Peaks Challenge in 2014.

I live near Minehead, Somerset on the edge of Exmoor. I was born and grew up here until I took a job at Selfridges, London in the eighties for 3 years. I missed the peace of the coast and countryside so moved back home. I work at the local village school and I’m also involved in the local community as a parish councillor, secretary of the gardening club and also on¬†the village orchard committee. I am a keen gardener and take part in the annual open garden event.

I enjoy being outdoors and taking part in challenges which you can read about on my home page. I hope you enjoy reading about them.

    Dear Keith, I just read your travel blog. The short story is amazing. You have got a talent writing stories and your rhetoric is beautiful. I am very impressed and you have got a new fan! It is my intention to read about your next adventure in August. Your pupils are very lucky! I will refer and promote your website to my friends and my wife.

    Indeed, our journey was a real adventure. It seems I recovered fully now and aware you have got one week remaining. Best regards Murat

  2. Hi Keith,
    Thankyou for allowing me access to all these great stories and thanks for all the support you gave me on the 3 Peak Challenge….all seems like a distant memory and indeed Genna’s thinking of doing it again with my daughter-in-law.How quickly the pain is forgotten! I’m not tempted and ,looking at how many calories get burnt up,I now realise why I felt so burnt out.The trouble is you feel too tired to eat so it gets harder and harder…..not bad for a 60 year old though!
    I will certainly be looking at your other challenges and consider doing some,I’ve ordered a new bike ready for Land’s End to John O’Groats and I’ll have to train well as I don’t want to be holding people back …..it’s certainly taught me why they’re called “Challenges”
    All the best from me and Genna
    and thank Netta for me,you help so many along the way ,we all appreciate the support she gives you

    Hi Keith
    It was great to read such an honest account of your London 3 Peaks Challenge – I have just signed up to do it this year and am trying to find out if I have to run DOWN the steps as well as up them! I would appreciate it if you could let me know as my ankle can cope with the climb but not the descent.
    Many thanks
    Tracey Keeling

      Hello Tracey,
      Thank you for your message. I pleased to hear you are taking part in this year’s L3P. I’m pleased to tell you that (due to H&S) the timer stops when you get to the top so you enjoy the views then when you’re ready, you get the lift down as it would get congested on the stairwell. The timer starts again once you’re outside of the building. Enjoy it!
      Keith
