He runs the Silva-sponsored Silva Navigation School from his Peak District home.
Pete is the author of three navigation books published by Cicerone: Map and Compass, and two mini-guides, Navigation, and Navigating with a GPS. He has also written for a variety of outdoor magazines, has worked for the BBC as a local radio reporter and leads walking holidays both at home and around the world.
