The Big Walks Club website was set up to record my mountain adventures and was originally inspired by the Ken Wilson's wonderful Big Walks and Classic Climbs books. The site will hopefully also inspire and help others enjoy their own mountain experiences.

The site provides information about expeditions being planned, as well as reports and photographs from previous trips.

Trip Reports are posted on the website as they happen. Quick links to some of the most popular pages on the site are given below :  

Welcome to the Big Walks Club Website

Video films have been made of most of trips. These would help greatly in the planning stage if you are thinking of repeating any expeditions and are produced very professionally. If you would like a DVD please go to Trip Reports for details of how to get hold of copies.

A section giving Useful Links is provided for information on weather and routes.

Please leave a message on the contact page if you want any more information about the routes we have completed or if you would like to join me in the Mountains.  It's great  to hear from like minded souls.


March 2020

 Planning for the JMT has now been put on hold due to the Coronavirus outbreak. An application for a permit has been put into the Yosemite system but as yet there has only been denial emails so hikers are still applying for permits.

September 2016

Tour of the Oisans  - the GR54

The GR 54 was completed in the first two weeks of September in fine style with 10 days of walking. The Kev Reynolds guide was followed but being able to wild camp gave a bit more flexibility of where we stopped and camped each night. The route goes through some spectacular mountain scenery and some nice villages. Never technically challenging there is good level of exertion on each stage of the route. A great trip and highly recommended for a quieter mountain trip. Trip report has been posted here.

The site is dedicated to the memory of my Dad, John Galsworthy, Group Scout Leader of the 11th Warrington Troop and loving father, who gave me the skills to climb all the mountains in my life
