Debbie North's love of fell walking blossomed when she met her husband, Andy, a keen hillwalker himself. But in 2008, she was diagnosed with spinal degeneration and was no longer able to walk the hills she loves so much. Andy refused to go exploring without his walking partner because it didnít feel right.
After a spell of feeling sorry for themselves, Debbie and Andy teamed up with TerrainHopper, makers of a 4x4 all-terrain wheelchair, so they could get out into the countryside again. With their hiking boots on and TerrainHopper charged and ready to go, they travelled coast to coast across the North of England, in the spirit of Wainwright.
