David Maughan – A Celebration of Moving On

It is always good to look back at some of the early Rohan Classics.

The Rohan Flashback category on Rohantime records stories of early Rohan. Many of the stories are from Rohan friends and customers that go back over 40 years.

A lovely set of photographs has just come in from David Maughan featuring the Moving On. The windshirt was an important part of the Rohan range in the 1980’s.

The first pictures I have are on the Dales Way in 1990 in the dried up river and the year after on Wainwright’s Coast to Coast in 1991, particularly at the end in the Wainwrights Bar at the Bay Hotel at Robin Hoods Bay.

There are also a couple of recent photographs which indicate why big front pockets are useful on walks and why I like the top so much – David

    There’s been a paper-girl in a Moving On working in Dundee’s west end this week (no pictures, I’m not up that early!)
