Heading out to do the Dales Way

Lizzy has always been active outdoors, she was even awarded an Oscar for being a ‘Mud Monster’ at primary school! At University she became heavily involved with the UEA Fell and Mountaineering Club, and quickly realised that an office job wasn’t the answer and the mountains and the people that you meet up them were calling. She became President of the Fell Club in her final year, went on to get her Summer Mountain Leader Award and moved to the mountains.


In her spare time she runs, climbs, cooks, and introduces her friends to her love of the mountains. You’ll often find her out on a Fell, in a pub planning her next big adventure or relaxing with friends celebrating life and cooking up a lovely meal, often involving something found in the hedgerow.
