Jasper Winn is a writer, photographer, broadcaster and public speaker. He has extensively researched and written about traditional horse cultures around the globe, about remote rural peoples, nomadism and transhumance, and about slow adventures on foot and horse, by bicycle and kayak, and using skis, inline skates and dog sleds.
Jasper Winn is the author of "PADDLE; A long way around Ireland." Though about a thousand mile sea-kayak circumnavigation of Ireland, the book is as much about playing music in pubs, meetings with basking sharks and other big marine life, odd Irish and coastal history, eccentric characters, birds, wild camping, islands and his own dangerously comic ineptitude.
Jasper Winn has been appointed the first ever ‘Writer in Residence’ for the Canal & River Trust will be blogging about the stories of the people living, visiting, working and volunteering on our waterways.
