Meet the Old Spice Boys - Dosh, Whinger, Shorty, Scaredy and Windy - five men who are, perhaps, approaching their 'sell-by' date, determined to prove that age is all in the mind. Together, they set off to walk from one coast of England to the other. Will their Ancient Feet carry them there? Will a diet of pies and pasties prove to be the right preparation for the physical challenge of walking over 190 miles? Will their friendship survive twelve days in each other's company? Why is one of them carrying three enormous onions? Following Alfred Wainwright's route across the north of England, their hilarious adventures unfold and one of them begins to believe he has much in common with his hero, particularly when he 'discovers' that Mr Wainwright had an unusual, and unpublicised, encounter with a buzzard.
Born and raised in Southport, Lancashire, Alan started work inLiverpool in 1963, just when The Cavern Club seemed to be the centre of the universe.Despite the distractions of pop and football, he managed to pick up a good groundingin finance and set up his own business as an Independent Financial Adviser in 1985. He is now retired and lives with his partner, Suzy, and their three border collies in aconverted village school in a small hamlet in rural North Staffordshire.
