Jenny Hatfield

Jenny Hatfield. I am an outdoor enthusiast, enjoying anything that gets me out into the natural world and wild places. Walking is my favourite pastime: hills, mountains, coast and islands accompanied by Bryher the cocker spaniel. I have completed all the Marilyns, Munro’s, Corbetts, Graham’s, Firths, Wainwrights, Jul Birketts, and Synges. I am currently working on completing the Donald’s and Donald Tops, Munro Tops, and the Snowdon Simms, Nuttalls and Buxton and Lewis’s. I also enjoy gardening, photography and cooking.
