Hello, my name is Mal Tabb, I started writing these web pages in Autumn 2010 while I was Centre Manager at Blaithwaite House, a Christian residential & outdoor education centre just to the north of the Lake District National Park.

Nowadays, along with my wife Marion we run "Canoes, Mountains & Caves"

Between us we hold a range of National Governing Body and recognised qualifications:

Mountain Leader Award (Summer)
BCU Canoe & Kayak Level 3
BCA LCMLA Level 2 (North England & North Wales)

A lifetime of enjoying the outdoors, both in the UK and overseas,encompasses over ten years full time professional experience: managing a large Lake District Christian Conference/Outdoor Activity Centre; lecturing in Outdoor Education at Colleges; freelance instruction with young people, adults, families; schools and businesses.

We are both passionate about introducing & progressing people, from all walks of life, to truly adventurous outdoor activity.

It is our hope that the Christian journey we are on, underpins and adds a different dimension to the work we look to achieve.
