The Haskell Field Standard is our ode to the spirit of Great Britain, it's a celebration of the spirit of adventure, set right here on our doorstep. It’s a nod to drizzly mountain treks, muddy wellington boots and escapades carried out not so far from home; from off-roading and seeking uncharted territory with just a compass and a Thermos, to defrosting by the pub fireside.

A recent adventure of our own with the Field Standard led us to a very special place where history was once made - in 1943, Wing Commander Guy Gibson and his Dambusters crew intensively practiced their night-time and low-altitude flying techniques at Derwent Reservoir in the Hope Valley, before their ground-breaking mission to Germany. 

 

 

Our special thanks to Reel Rebellion who captured the adventure, and of course Pete Hutchins for taking us on it. We also thought some of the behind-the-scenes photographs deserved a place here, enjoy.
