Space Below My Feet

Gwen Moffat / Anne Dover Gordon Griffin
In 1945 Gwen Moffat deserted from her post as dispatch rider in the Army and went to live rough in Wales and Cornwall climbing and living on practically nothing. She hitch-hiked her way around travelling from Skye to Chamonix and many places in between with all her possessions on her back. When the money ran out she worked as a forester went winkle-picking on the Isle of Skye and did a stint as an artist's model. And always there were the mountains drawing her away from a “proper” job. Throughout this unique story there are acutely observed accounts of mountaineering exploits as Moffat tackles the toughest climbs and goes on to become the first woman to qualify as a mountain guide.
