Phil's Online Photo Site

Hi. I am Phil and welcome to my website featuring pictures and articles of my past 30 years of touring and travelling around the UK. My mode of transport is mainly by bicycle and I have done a number of tours in England Scotland and North Wales. I also do a bit of walking as well and travelling by train when necessary. I live in the North Yorkshire town of Harrogate which is about 21 miles west from the Historic City of York close to the beautiful Yorkshire Dales country. More on the Yorkshire Dales can be found on my other website by clicking on the following link www.philsnidderdalesite.co.uk . As well as photography I also have an interest in vintage radio and more information can be found by clicking on the following link www.philsvalveradiosite.co.uk which is my technical website based on radio and electronics. This particular website is now 10 years old and to mark this anniversary I have decided to do a slight refurbishment which is now complete. Most of the old pages relating to my cycle touring are still with us and my latest page has some grand pictures of my recent revisit of Norfolk which brings back many 1980s cycling memories by visiting the following link  Pictures From My Cycle Tours Of South East England .
