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.

Horwich Heritage Wilderswood Trail

These houses, on Bridge Street, are very old and are opposite the old bleach works.

The old cart road, up to Wilderswood.

A water trough that is made of iron.

This is where the tram way track was from the mine.

A spider on my dad's leg!

This is the forest near Rockhaven Castle.

These are old miner's cottages, Brinks Row.

A brick made in Horwich.
