Darren Walker amongst many other achievements is the last cobbler in Yeadon High Street as well as being a Motor Bike Racing Champion, that seems a big leap doesn’t it, you will have to listen see how it all comes about. From the high speed track to a sedate walk across fields metal detecting and the even more sedate magnet fishing, no, I hadn’t heard of that either.

A good life story, sit back and enjoy it.
