About the speaker...
Byron Machin is a documentary maker, writer, professional lecturer and Geography teacher from the Staffordshire Moorlands. Born in the town of Leek, he has had a passion for all aspects of landscape history since he was a young boy. His current series of talks reflects the passions and interests which he has been researching for many years. Byron has recently been in the news for creating a four part, eight hour documentary series containing a wealth of information on the history, wildlife, folklore and landscape of the Peak District. The film has been commended not only for its presentation and level of information but also its dangerous and compelling footage of underground and inaccessible locations. In addition to writing and documentary making Byron is also a keen Botanist and Entomologist, at this moment finishing a 7 year research project on the wild Orchids of the Peak District.
