Hugh Stewart has spent most of his life repairing or replacing bits of folks limbs as an orthopaedic surgeon, for the last twenty years in Lancaster and Kendal. Otherwise walking, climbing, cycling, mountain biking ease the pain, with a special liking for really foul Scottish winter conditions. He first did a long distance walk in 1977, the Coast to Coast, repeated 25 years later, and has devised and walked quite a few since. This is his first attempt at communicating the pleasure they give.
He is married and lives near Lancaster.
