Amongst other things I'm interested in the geology and geography of Great Britain and, in particular, that of Scotland, Northern England and Wales. I've taken a recent interest in the lengths of UK rivers as they appear in Wikipedia - many have proved (at least to my satisfaction) to be wildly inaccurate - something I'm not satisfied with!
