A walk on the Moor, and some encouragement from my favourite writer.
The Moor is looking decidedly lacklustre this August.

24-Nov-2017: 158 years ago today saw the publication of my hero Charles Darwin’s ‘On the Origin of Species’. What better excuse could I possibly need for choosing today to launch my own book, ‘On the Moor: Science, History and Nature on a Country Walk’.
I’m delighted to announce the launch of my book ‘On the Moor: Science, History and Nature on a Country Walk’.
This afternoon, I received my proof copy of ‘On the Moor’.
