- About Me Jake ,I am 11 years old and have Autism. This Blog is about what I can do not what I cannot,sometimes people think I cannot because I have autism ,this blog is about challenging that!I have lots of special interests, in particular running, exploring and this blog shows a small amount of what I get up to! Please be careful as some of activities I do may look easy are not , I know Winter Hill very well I can get off safely and know what to do when the weather closes in ,to keep myself safe I use high performance clothing and footwear,waterproof/ breathable/reflective/thermal layers. in layers so I keep warm and dry , I take my safety seriously and I always take care when out exploring. My dad is very experienced on the fells he is teaching me how to keep safe.I can use a map and compass, the hills can be windy , very cold, be wet , misty and boggy. STAY SAFE! check out under my link's for advice on safety from Bowland and Pennine Mountain rescue.

links to Beetham,
A small shrine to Saint Lioba (or Leoba), built into a stone wall in the nearby hamlet of Slackhead.
this is an old gate post
looks like a giant pine cone !
through the forest -I am in the distance !
This gives some information about the fairy steps
Note from Dad : this is not only a good walk but a famous climbing area for bouldering this has a V15(the difficulty of a boulder problem is described by the American 'V' grade system that runs fromV0- to V15)
description of a climb called Walk Away V15 - (sit start) The middle of the wall is utterly desperate by the way !!! in fact the sit start is pretty grim ;)

looking up the fairy steps
if you want to see the fairies you are supposed to fit through this without touching the sides but it is too narrow for dad !!
