Maurice spent his working life as a sheep farmer. For 36 years until retirement in 2006, He farmed at Low Place in Miterdale where my flock of 2000 Herdwick sheep grazed the high fells overlooking Wastwater. Outside work his interests have always been in wild flowers and photography. After many years enjoying camera club activities he became passionately interested in making slide-tape shows using a reel-to-reel recorder. He still has all the enthusiasm but not the recorder.”
