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
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.
Well I did not manage to get get up to Scotland this year to carry on my Corbett
campaign due to the lack of time with holidays with my wife. However, next year will
be different since I am retiring in January so I will have time to dedicate to climbing
the Corbetts. I hope to get away for a week in April, May and June so hope to complete
about 50 Corbetts next year.
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.
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
