Willowdown at age 22years, pictured with Pete Simm (and John's legs).

A short motorcycling and camping trip in a wet Derbyshire's Peak District, here an overnight stop in the magical Goyt Valley.  The popular area is a few miles west of Buxton and it has an attractive mix of moorland, forests, reservoirs, and farmland.

The River Goyt is a river in North West England. It is one of the tributaries of the River Mersey.  If I recollect correctly, Peter rode as a passenger in the Pete Simm sidecar(?)  (comments by George Godfrey)
Pete at age 19 years: A seven day walking and camping break (with George) near Betws-y-Coed, a village and community in the Conwy valley, North Wales; circa July/Aug. 1973.  Here, sitting up high on a promentory (as our 'georgers' (Geography) teacher might say) with a very good view over the valley below, whilst simultaneously
practicing left arm levitation! (comments by George Godfrey)
