I created the first version of this website in 1997 for my friend David. He lives in the USA and has never been able to come to the UK to see the real Watership Down. So, I decided to take Watership to him, this website is the result.

I must thank my friend Graham who accompanied me on some of my trips to the Watership Down area. Graham gave me much encouragement and took some wonderful photos himself, some of which I have now added to this website. Many of my best photographs are from a two day trip the weekend before my university final year exams in 1983. That trip started at Efrafa in perfect June weather and ended with us climbing down Watership Down while the thunder built overhead. Later that evening the thunder burst just like on the evening Thlayli escaped from Efrafa.
