Jill Durnford

After many years in education, I was thrilled to be able to train as a  Blue Badge Guide for Cumbria.  It seems to be the perfect job,  combining my love of talking to people with my many and varied interests. I like to think that I am following the example of Cumbrian resident John Ruskin who was interested in art, architecture, the environment and society (amongst many other interests) though I am not quite the expert that he was!
