Most of my mapping is focussed in North West London and the adjacent areas of Hertfordshire, in particular Harrow Weald, Pinner, Hatch End, Belmont, Wealdstone, Stanmore, Bushey, Bushey Heath and the edges of Watford. I have also made some contributions in south west Ireland, north west Scotland and the midlands. I have been contributing to OSM since Easter 2007 mostly by bicycle and using an eTrex Venture Cx. When I first started there was still significant gaps in the area but in recent times my focus has been on naming roads and adding foot paths, tracks and bridleways.

I enjoy travelling out on the bike looking for 'new' footpaths, bridleways and tracks and then following them, repeating the process several times, and then hopefully finishing somewhere in range of home!

I also have an interest in the local history of the area and tend to keep an eye out for interesting and old buildings and monuments, and clues to how the area has developed.
