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

  1. Hello Jake (and Evie, Leo and Dad),
    Thanks for posting the pictures. We had a great time up Winter Hill and I'm sure it's the first of many trips. Meeting lovely people like you made it even more special.
    I'm going to take the time to read through your blog and get some more tips on where to go and what to do.
    Keep exploring!
    Thanks again, Clare x

  2. Note from dad ,Thanks very much for the comments , Evie really enjoyed being able to fly the Kite, Jake really enjoyed watching the kites , let us know if we can help you with any advice of if you would like Jake to show some of the great Historic places on Winter Hill, Rivington pike or Wilderswood
    Kind regards, Jake,Evie and Leo
