Chris Forbes

I'm based in the North East, which is a perfect position for me to immerse myself in the natural beauty of the North of England. I spend as much time as possible in the National Parks, from the Lake District to Northumberland, searching for the best views and trying to experience all of the wonders of the UK. 

I am currently planning an assault on the Lake District, to summit all of the 214 listed Wainwrights in 2017. This will be a huge challenge, but something that I have a great deal of enthusiasm for, & I feel it will motivate me even more. 

My time spent in the hills is always shared with my loyal companion, a cocker spaniel named Lola who loves the outdoors as much as I do, & wherever possible, I try to share my experiences with my family, as I find this a fantastic way of spending quality time together, which brings us even closer as a team.

I look forward to sharing my adventures in association with Ascendancy Apparel. It is a fantastic opportunity to work in conjunction with an innovative, creative and most importantly, local brand.
