The Website

Hello my name is John Walton or 'Ford Hunter'
My mission, which began in 2010, is to photograph all the fords in mainland England

The mission is simple, visit and document all the fords in Mainland England! I am not talking about the upland streams found on hiking expeditions but the ones that can be visited in your car, albeit on many occasions this might need to be an off-road type or even a trail bike. Bridleways are covered to some extent if they are merit worthy, usually that means they are substantial or particularly "pretty". Inevitably the quality of the photographs are not exactly as I would wish as many have been taken at times of flood, low light and heavy rain. With time I hope to upgrade with improved shots, particularly the more important fords.

I appreciate that there is another ford related website which lists all these fords and one I have contributed to myself. The difference with mine is that it is aimed at the photographic record of the ford rather than it's "drive-through" credentials. All of the fords are also recorded as part of the Geograph Project and you will find me listed there under my nickname, Ford Hunter:

If you would like to contact me then I'd love to hear from you. I especially welcome any updates on the status of the fords. I have visited all the fords on this website and the photographs are my own personal record. If you would like to use any of the images then see the links to my Geograph Profile where they are available under the Creative Commons Licence.


The fords are listed by their county in the counties section. A map of their location can be found by drilling down on the location tab against each image which will take you to my entry on the 'Geograph' site. For a guide on how to do this click on the How to Search for a Ford tab below. You can follow my progress by reference to the area shaded red on the English County Map, which also itemises the number of "official" fords still to be visited; or in detail on my Geograph Ford Map in the links section. To see all the fords still on the list see Fords Still To Visit in the link below.
