Graham’s first survival experience happened when we has just 10 years old. He ran away with two tins of beans and half a packet of sugar puffs. He lasted 4 days. A couple of years later he started to study animals and their habitats and learnt how to trap and snare. At 16, he joined the army a developed his passion for climbing. He has climbed, worked and practised his bushcraft and survival skills all over Europe, North and South America, South Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.
After leaving the Army he completed MLTE and SPA training and has taught climbing and moorland/mountain walking. He fell in love with the Pennines and now spends time on them every single day with his dogs. He took six months off work and travelled through Africa on a motorbike until he run out of visas and came home via Norway for a change of scenery. Graham works with a charity mentoring young people who have lost their way. Teaching DofE and taking disadvantaged young people out into the country side.
