Jamie Dyson Rerouted Writer Blog

When we first adopted Herbie, our rescue dog, he opened up a whole new world to us. The world of walking. Our short trips through the local countryside began to get longer and more adventurous, evenings in front of the TV turned into nights in front of OS maps and walking routes, while we plotted where we would venture next.

Upon moving to Yorkshire, we became ideally placed to spend every weekend in the Dales, on the North York Moors, or in the Peak District.

I’d had a love of writing for some time, regularly scribbling thoughts and stories then posting them to my blog. Soon I realised that the stories we brought home from our walks, the experiences and memories we picked up along the way, and the gorgeous scenery that surrounded us, were often more fantastic and wonderful than any fiction I could dream up.

I combined my loves of walking and writing and became the Rerouted Writer, with a mission to use my words to bring the world of walking to a wider audience.
