In addition to the core team above, we have a pool of trusted associates who also deliver courses and private days on our behalf. This staff pool covers top climbers, cavers, trainer assessors for awards, bushcraft experts and many more. Not having a personal profile here only means we have not got room - each and every one of our associates is personally known to us and vetted. We’ve worked alongside, or in some cases for, each person and trust them to deliver the standard we set for quality and safety.

I’ve been based in the Peak District since 2007 and have worked for a number of different activity providers in the area as a freelance staff member as well as full time for one of the major activity centres. Previously I have been based on the North York Moors and was a Senior Instructor at a small activity centre there. Over the last 7 years I have gained experience in running and training other instructors to run many types of activity sessions. I’ve worked with all types of client groups; youth groups, mixed background, skills courses, management, mixed ability & hen/stag groups as well as one to one coaching with other instructors.

As you can see from my picture I am a caver and I hold the Cave Instructor Certificate, the top qualification for cavers in the U.K.
I am actively involved in Derbyshire caving and cave conservation. I’m currently chairman of the Darkside Caving & Mining Club and a member of P.I.C.A. (Peak Instructed Caving Affiliation).

My other loves include bushcraft and photography but I can honestly say that there is not a single activity I do not enjoy instructing and taking part in myself.

I have always been passionate about the outdoors, with particular interest in caving and walking. I grew up in Sheffield and having the Peak District on the doorstep was great as from an early age I gained a love of all things outdoors.

I have been working as an instructor since 2003 in the Peak District, North Yorkshire and North Wales. I have experience working with of all types of client groups including school groups, youth groups, special needs groups, skills courses and mixed background groups. I too have worked for many of the Peak District’s activity providers and centres giving me a great knowledge of the area and the different activities that can be done there.
