Vicky Basford I have loved and visited the Lake District since I was a child and my son has also visited from childhood. My ambition to walk across Morecambe Bay was inspired many years ago when I read Melvyn Bragg's novel 'The Maid of Buttermere' and I have decided that this is the year I will realise my ambition. My son David will be walking across the bay with me. Vicky Basford
