I’ll add more details shortly. For now I wanted to create the page so I can link our Just Giving page to the walk and kick it all off.

About MJS Walking

I started walking again as i approached my 40th birthday. The thrill of reaching the peak of a mountain and the panoramic views is such inspiration. Before i knew it i was walking the Pennine Way, which sparked a whole raft of long distance walks. 

With time i hope to capture some of them and share the experience with you.
