About Me

Winter Hill ,Horwich, UK
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. Try my Winter Hill Challenge

Burnt Edge to New chapel lane

a simular route 


Evie is walking up the path from walker fold farm

this is called Chadwick's close farm I looked this up on the map
there was another farm in Halliwell with the same name

can you see the mast ? me and Evie are practicing on the walkie talkies
walker fold farm

Leo is not happy we found out later he got his first tooth !
can you see the stone track this is for the colliery !
the stone slabs stopped the heavy carts getting stuck !

this is the burnt edge colliery pit head
some of the old mine buildings
can you see the Caterpillar ?

me and Evie exploring on the old walls

there is a small tunnel here - this may be a old brick kiln ?

a hole you have to be careful when exploring
I am helping Evie cross the uneven grass
the old colliery
the track above the old colliery is very different  they did not lay out stone slabs !

this is the air shaft marked on the map

burnt edge farm
the mast

the two lads

Evie is going round a big puddle too deep for her wellies !
leo has gone to sleep can you see the mast ?
this is near white brow

we could see some llamas on the farm !
the Reebok staduim

we saw a fox here
these look like emu or rheas!

we found some stones six of them , three each side !
the horses were nice to touch
Leo woke up and was touching the horses

the six stones

this collects water - for the animals
me and Evie stroking the horses

I loved this horse he was so soft
