This blog is about my adventures, exploring Interesting places around the United Kingdom and in other countries. I live close to Winter Hill in Lancashire, hence the title and a lot of our adventures are local to here. We don't just go running, we find places that are interesting, such as old mines, brickworks and other local historic sites. I hope you enjoy the blog and please feel free to make comments and I will try my best to reply :-) Dont Just run or Walk explore !
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.
