As well as taking photographs, we also like to take a bit of video footage of our walks. They are simply filmed using a hand held standard camera with video facility, and then edited when we return to the office.

Simply choose which video you want to watch from the list below.

More videos will be added over the coming months, so don't forget to bookmark this page and return every now and then to see where we've been.

Want to make your own videos?

Colwith Force and the Money Log

A hint of a much longer walk, featuring one of the Lake District's many hidden secrets - places that only walkers and mountain bikers can ever reach, but that are in fact close to a road. Colwith Force is little more than 100 yards from a busy motor route over the mountains and yet few motor based tourists know of it's existence.

Cockshott Point

Perfect for summer evenings. Not all walks are on to the high fells. Nor do they have to ten miles long. It's "horses for courses" as they say, and this short but very pleasant walk is ideal for those long summer evenings when all you want to do is go for a stroll and relax.
