Walking Breaks in the Lake District

January Blues

Everyone loves winter walking in the Derbyshire Dales at New Year, especially when there is snow underfoot

It can make even the most energetic of us feel down in the dumps, the partying and the over indulgence has come to an end and for many of us it’s back to work. On top of this, it’s cold, wet and windy. It’s not surprising we get the January Blues, but there’s no need

Cleaning Walking Boots need not be a chore; your choice of footwear for walking, especially winter walking
