Friends

Millican Dalton is just one of the local heroes we admire. Here are 15 others. To thank these legends in the making, we named our entire range after them.

    Peter

    An apple a day keeps the daredevil away.

    When Peter’s not paragliding, skiing or cycling across Mexico raising funds for charity, he’s helping people get healthy so they can do the same. He’s a GP in Keswick.

    The world’s not Andy’s oyster. It’s his dance floor.

    When he’s not perfecting his moves on an E1 up the fells, Andy’s inside somewhere showing off his mean salsa moves. On the dance floor, he’s the centre of attention for one reason or another. Why? He’s incredibly tall and he’s in charge of the music. Call him “DJ Big Andy” if you want to.

  • Les

    Les


    Meet as strangers, leave as friends.

    Next time you’re in Keswick stay with Les. He runs a B&B in town and may even take you out for a hike or cycle across the land his family has farmed for generations.

  • Harry

    Harry

    What if boredom was officially outlawed? Harry would be the one to do it.

    Harry’s always on the go. And excitement is never far behind. He often has one foot in London at work or a gig and the other up the fells. When it’s time to play, he’ll be the one organising a hike or a party for all his mates.

    Keeping Saturday mornings family-free.

    Stewart and a group of lads and dogs get up early every Saturday to walk the fells. Walking, cycling, running in the annual local triathlon, he’s always on the move. Why? For the banter. And sometimes for charity.

  • Mark

    Mark

    Life outside is as unpredictable as life anywhere with Mark.

    You never know what to expect with Mark. Like Keswick Collectables, his antiques, vintage and vinyl shop, he’s full of surprises. He loves camping in the wild. Open spaces. A place where everyone’s an easy target for his practical jokes.

  • Dave

    Dave

    Dave

    Born a farmer, always a farmer.

    For Dave, life begins when he steps outside each morning. Accompanied by his sidekicks Rob and Bess, he roams around the farm all day looking after sheep and cattle. If he’s not there, he’ll be roaming around a football pitch wishing he was 18 again.

    Matt

    Honorary local – city dweller, country player.

    Living and working in London as a designer, Matt is the only non-local rogue in the group. He’s got a keen sense for clean design and he loves keeping it lo-fi – writing in notebooks, chilling at festivals, exploring distant shores. All the stuff we like doing actually.

    A modern-day Millican
    Author of Millican Dalton’s inspiring biography, Matthew truly lives his passion for all things outdoors, just like Millican himself. His pack and bedroll are by his side wherever he roams, from Borrowdale to Kakadu.

    Running away with music

    As a peripatetic music teacher, Stephen’s dedication to music, teaching and fell-running is legendary throughout Cumbria. Peripatetic (“walking about or travelling from place to place”) is therefore rather apt for Stephen.

    Lakeland Perfection

    Joe farms Herdwick sheep at Yew Tree Farm in Borrowdale, a stone’s throw away from Millican Dalton’s cave. Herdwicks mature slowly and require patience, dedication and intuitive skills. Joe’s got all this and much more – Rick Stein, Gordon Ramsay and Gilpin Lodge agree.
