Keith Bradbury

Keith Bradbury's early interest was in white water and sea canoeing. After trekking in Nepal and canoe guiding in France, a teaching job in Kendal meant the Lake District would be his next playground. Walking and climbing then became new passions, until he was introduced to caving in the Yorkshire Dales.
He has been exploring their hidden places for the last 20 years, either underground with helmet and lamp, or above, on his (t)rusty mountain bike. A member of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild, Keith prides himself on his knowledge of the Lake District and the Northern Dales bridleways.
