(known as Glorious)

Navigator and Gentleman Explorer

(A photograph of ‘Glorious’ basking in the achievement of Mam-Tor  at 1,696 feet above sea level)

The pose is captured at the summit trig point, which is supporting his arm, which is supporting his head, which is doubtless supporting one of his regular unseen hangovers.

Mam Tor, a hill near Castleton in the High Peak District of Derbyshire. Mam Tor means “mother hill”, so-called because frequent landslips on its eastern face have resulted in a multitude of ‘mini-hills’ beneath it.

Glorious comment “Sadly the many surrounding hills and other important landscape features were not visible during this assent due to the encumbrance of bastard-cloud”

Editor comment “Be aware gentle folk of Glorious’s tendency to revert to the language of the street urchin at times of irksomeness – hence the ‘bastard cloud’ with which, I promise, you will become well acquainted in forthcoming contributions from our esteemed Chief Outdoors Correspondent”.

 …….. It is the art of Mr. Bream to address himself to all levels of society without the faintest hint of superiority or condescension.

He will assume that your day has been trying and that your spirit is in need of uplifting.

All he asks is for your attention as he moves along his chosen pathway, and a yearning for immersion into pools filled deep with his refreshing eloquent prose.

If an outdoors lifestyle is your goal and your hopes are high for a degree of intellectual improvement along the way, you will find his words contain the prettiest humour and hold mental stimulation a plenty. They are sure to inspire.

Godwit Bream stands for all that is beauty and delight in nature……..
