Brian Evans began walking in Silverdale with his parents in the 1940s, while living in nearby Morecambe. He has also trekked, climbed, skied, caved, canoed and, more recently, mountain biked all over the world but always enjoys returning to enjoy the landscapes and wildlife of Silverdale. He lives near Preston with his wife Aileen, his companion on most of the adventures.
