Walking fan Bradbury becomes mum
Bookmark and Share
Ramblers president and populariser of walking Julia Bradbury has given birth to a baby boy.

And the Wainwright Walks presenter has named him Zephyr - which means breeze or wind - a name that may have been inspired by the weather while walking on a lofty Lake District fell.

Those keen to follow in the footsteps of the presenter and enjoy the hills written about by Alfred Wainwright may benefit from wearing walking jackets and other gear to help deal with the wind and other weather conditions, particularly with autumn not far off.

Ms Bradbury, who had been surprised and delighted to find herself expecting as she suffers with the fertility-threatening disease endometriosis, described her baby as a "breath of fresh air".

Alfred Wainwright described 214 Lake District fells in his seven pictorial guides, which were written and illustrated by hand during the 1950s and 1960s.

These include four peaks over 3,000 ft - Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn and Skiddaw.
