Your Guide: Sue
Sue has been walking for as long as she can remember, before that she thinks she was crawling. She also likes to get around by bicycle, kayak, scooter, horse, boat or just about anything with wheels, legs, paddles or a sail. Being outdoors and moving are just about her two favourite things to do. She's also pretty keen on the Iron Age, but not on ironing.
