Andrew Bowden

Biography

Andrew Bowden was born and raised in Manchester and spent much of his early years being dragged around Etherow Country Park a few miles from his parents house.

After abandoning hiking in his teenage years in favour of spending far too much time in front of computer games, he returned to the hills after settling in London.

As well as the Coast to Coast he has walked the Pennine Way, the South Downs Way, Dales Way, the West Highland Way, the Southern Upland Way, the Cumbria Way and more.

Somehow he even finds the time to run a walking based website called Rambling Man (www.ramblingman.org.uk)
