I’m a lecturer living in Nantwich, Cheshire.  I teach agriculture, business, and IT (including using a computer to trace your family tree and web page design).  I have a special interest in search engine optimisation and the use of social networking sites for small businesses.  I also have a site on Improving Learning. This site is my personal site, views expressed here are my own and may not reflect the views of Reaseheath College.

Food Links

I write the Good Food Shops blog (click here for a map of places visited) which is a personal guide to traditional and unusual food shops.  I also have a Good Food Shops page on Facebook and write on Twitter.  I’m fascinated with how the food we eat had been influenced by historical influences, for instance see my pages on Gingerbread.   I’m from the Northwest of England, see here for my guide to food from this area.  I think I’ve managed to visit every Staffordshire Oatcake shop, see here for a map.


In my spare time I go walking, sometimes with Country Guide Holidays.  I use a SatMap to record my routes, see here for some of my walks.

I’ve got an iPad, I’ve put links to some of the Apps I like here.

You can also find me on LinkedIn and and I have an Other Stuff blog for some other items I find interesting.

    Hello. I saw your name in connection with Ashbourne Gingerbread and wondered if you are related to someone I knew many years ago.
    Her name is, or was, Sue (or Susan) Pearson and her parents ran the Ashbourne Gingerbread Shop at the time, which was in the late 1970’s. Sue would be around 56-58 years of age by now. We knew each other as students back then, and it would nice to have a catch-up. I wondered if you might have an email address for her if she is your relative?
    Grateful for any reply even if it’s just to say that you’re not connected to her. Many thanks, Phil Brown
