“A year ago I worked as a canine steward at the mid-way point on a 50-mile Peak District walk. It turned out to be glorious fun!

“Not only did I get to nip the ankles of weary walkers and steal snacks, I also discovered a superb pub 50 yards up the road.

“The Packhorse at Little Longstone near Bakewell welcomed me with open arms and served me several pints of a cracking Thornbridge Brewery IPA called Jaipur. My stewarding became a little erratic, but what a great way to spend the day.”
