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

quick post first snow on Winter Hill.

Rivington Pike -snow, we went via two Lads -cold weather -1 to the pike through fog with some falling snow
me doing a roly poly though the snow hadnt really settled but it was still fun !
running down the road snow falling   after going between the Pike and mast road 

watching the snow falling when we were in the car !

very odd night - hail , clear sky's with gusts of wind , then snow falling then fog then snow again - just a small amount though !


  1. Bit early for the first snow Jake! I live on the Fylde Coast. Sometimes I can see the snow. Today I can't!

  2. although it has snowed a few times it has never settled , this is the first time we saw this stick , I was a train early on Monday and there was a small amount on Horwich Parkway car park , when i came back it had gone , this relates only to this day but last year
    more heavy snow and lower temps
