Simon Danby - Documentaries


Welcome to a blend of musicians and actors, the mundane and the stretches of land, flora and life around Alston Moor in the north Pennine hills of England. Add splashes of adventure playgrounds and the worlds of Newcastle upon Tyne and West Cumberland, stir with a love of oral history and that’s much of what this site’s about.

Where else would you find John Peel, and Led Zeppelin rubbing along with lead mining, mountain pansies and Owd Chower the cow?
