We are Rob, Sue & Ste - we live in St Helens Merseyside but would desparately love to move upto Lakeland permanently should our financial circumstances change (ie Lottery win !!). We travel the relatively short distance up the M6 to Lakeland as often as we can. The love for this beautiful area started around the time when Ste was about 2 years old and we journeyed up one scorching August Bank Holiday in 1993. To see Derwent Water for the first time ever and the surrounding fells had a profound effect upon us and from that day onwards we all were under the spell of this magical area
Rob, The Website author. I work as a Linux & Unix systems engineer in the CoOpertaive Groups Cloud Infrastructure. I am a Liverpool FC Season Ticket holder and I play Northwest Counties Squash. I enjoy the lung burst that you get going up a steep fell, but have to admit that I dont climb in rain and poor visibilty as that rather defeats the object of enjoying the marvellous summit views. Shortly to take early retirement after which point the remaining Wainwright Fells will be ticked off
Sue, The proud owner of one metal knee, earned after years and years of high impact aerobics and several years of climbing mountains. A housewife (or Domestic Engineer) but also a qualified Secretary. Supports Everton Football Club and is in to most sports. A very accomplished guitar and bass player having been a member of several bands over the years
Ste, Our lovely son, currently employed (and massively under valued) on the Reception at our local Health Club. Follows St Helens Rugby League and is in to Gym Training and Aerobics. Loves Lakeland and is similarly minded in wanting to move up there eventually. Does a lot of voluntary work for our local De la Salle Brothers care home. A lover of nature and the great outdoors
Jones (The Bastard) - Sadly no longer with us. Jones was our highly strung and extremely stroppy Cairn Terrier. Overly opinionated and not at all sociable with other dogs, however great with people. He was a very poor car traveller which sometimes limited his number of trips to Lakeland as 5 minutes in the car with him was more than enough. Greatly missed
Spud - Our new member of the family, a 10 week old
Cairn Terrier pup. With 3 Wainwright Fells under his belt already.
