Colin is the author of guides to some of the finest walking routes in London and South East England: the Capital Ring, the London Loop, the North Downs Way national trail, the Pymmes Brook Trail and the Vanguard Way. And together with Slovak mountain guide Renáta Nárožná, their guide to the High Tatras range of Poland and Slovakia is regarded as the definitive guide to these beautiful mountains.
Colin has written his first novel (see ‘Fifty paces Forward!’ below) also some fascinating historical accounts about walking phenomena: Rambling Away From ‘The Smoke’ (ramblers’ excursions from London), The Strollerthon Story (a fabulous fundraising event for children’s charities), and The Waymark Story (a wonderful little operator of walking and cross-country skiing holidays).
