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

Two lads

off towards the Winter Hill mast

My dad took this whilst running behind - or the mast is about to fall down !

the Pike

if you wanted to know what it looked like at the top of the Pike !

watching some birds

hmm.... someone thinks that using a 4X4 is fun but it ruins the surface and destroys the environment

This is the mast

running across the grass
looking for water - the sphagnum moss is for drinking it from

Coal - one of the signs of the old mines ,

found some old iron
I use a technique to get feeling back into my hands after getting them wet
this old mining area has been destroyed by the water authorities for no known reason yet they allow 4X4 drivers to destroy the environment ?

Hole Bottom

enjoy !!!
