Richard on the Moor
Giving it the Heathcliffs on the Moor

I’m a writer and photographer based in Hebden Bridge in the West Yorkshire Pennines.

My interests include the natural world, the British countryside, science in general, and Charles Darwin in particular. I combined these interests in my first book, On the Moor: Science, History and Nature on a Country Walk. It’s about digging deeper into the things I encounter on my local patch. It’s good: you should definitely check it out—by which, I mean buy it.

I’m currently working on a book about looking at the world through Darwin’s eyes.
