Meet The Team - Walking tour holidays

Meet The Team

We have a dedicated group of walk leaders and administration staff who work together as a team to ensure your holiday is the best we can give you.

We are constantly seeking to improve our walking product and add new areas of walking interest to you.

We also constantly review our hotel facilities and underpinning services that make the walking programmes work.

Take a look - but pictures alone cannot tell you about our individual skills and personalities - you only get that on each holiday.

Keith Oxby

Keith has a wealth of experience in running group holidays- walking and fishing in particular. He returned from working in the USA a couple of years ago, and joined our team 18 months ago as  senior group leader. East Midlands born, he now lives in Chesterfield

Alan Garner

Alan Garner founded Secret Hills Walking Holidays in 2002, and has built a superb team of walk leaders who run the walking breaks. A walker all his life, Alan started the company in the Shropshire Hills - "it's called Secret Hills Walking because I rarely found many walkers on the Shropshire Hills, it was very much an unknown area for walking, yet it is a superb natural landscape, with so much to offer"

" I am proud of what we have achieved and hopefully we can continue to develop new areas  of superb walking for you in the future."



Paul Watts

Paul walks for Secret Hills in Shropshire, Derbyshire, The Cotswolds, Ironbridge and the Lake District.

He is an expert in moths and butterflies, and also a magician, who occasionally entertains us with a trick or two.

Paul lives in Shifnal with his partner Pam, and has walked with Secret Hills for four years.
