    Story

    This day (17th March) in 1973, 49 years ago, Allison and I walked up to the top of Snowdon with 4 friends. In the picture I still have hair!

    I intend to revisit Snowdon on the same day this year (weather permitting!) and walk up to the summit via the Llanberis path again to mark the 50th anniversary of our previous walk to the top. It is nearly 4 years since Allison passed away and I am doing this both to remember her and to raise money in her name for the local food bank here in Elmswell which I help to run and organise.

    This time I am going up with Allison’s younger sister (Fiona) and some of her friends. It isn’t the hardest walk in the world, around 10 miles, but it will still be a challenge for me as I recovered from my own battle in 2021 with Lymphoma, underwent 6 rounds of chemotherapy and had to learn to walk again after an operation to remove one of the lesions on my spine.

    Anyone who knows Snowdon is aware that a railway runs to the top, BUT, the service doesn’t start until April, so no cheating!

    Will definitely, however, be requiring a drink or two at the end of it!

    We didn’t start going out together until the 23rd March, obviously not put off by the Snowdon trip, got engaged 2 years later and were married the next year in 1976!

      Made it up 80% of way past Clogwyn station but snow/slush on steep (dangerous) path ahead and very windy, sleet/hail showers and fog over the higher route so decided to turn back. Very tiring and great views where fog had cleared but thought we needed to get back safely

      Well done, Mike. A moving story. Thank you for being sensible on the walk and seeing our daughter back down safely. A wonderful achievement and tribute to Allison.
