Historian, writer, country walker - covers most of my main pre-occupations.
I live in south-east London, close to the border with Kent - which is convenient for the regular essential escape from London and handy for one of my other passions - country walking.
I spent most of my formative years in Dorset - a county which I still love. My love of country walking began in the Purbeck Hills and it is still one of my favourite places in the country.
I also like traditional folk music, especially Scandinavian music, and play an Octave Mandola - though admittedly with more enthusiasm than skill ! !
