Image: freelance web designer for hire..

I set up the business in 2002 and chose to operate as a sole trader, using the name of the local landmark (The Chevin) as the basis of the name. After 30 years living on the doorstep of the Peak District and after several years of preparation and saving, myself, my wife and our 3 cats moved to France in 2009, from where I continue to run the business as before. My (internet) telephone number 0114 360 1004 is based in the UK so UK call rates apply.

There are a lot of web site designers and search engine optimisation 'experts' out there and I realise that you have others to look at. I appreciate that you have made the time to visit You may decide not to take advantage of my services or to ask for a quote but if you do contact me you will find someone who will go the extra mile to make sure that you end up with the web site that you want.

I do not outsource work at all, whether it be to the cheap Indian, Eastern European etc web design and search engine 'experts', your web site or search engine optimisation will be entirely carried out by myself.

The same philosophy goes for the web hosting I offer. I use eco-friendly UK based hosting that offers true and rapid response support from someone who can actually help, not just an outsourced worker who submits support tickets on your behalf. In other words, hosting with Chevinside, you can rest assured your website will have optimal support, performance and uptime.

Thanks for visiting and I look forward to working with you on your affordable low cost web site.

My strengths lie in the coding of a web site, I use clean coding that complies with current web standards and that is search engine friendly. All sites I produce are responsive and therefore are suitable for users reaching your site using a smartphone, tablet computer or other mobile device. Google have declared that they will block sites that are not suitable for display on hand-held devices from appearing in mobile search results. Unless you have no interest in your site being found via search engines, having a responsive site is crucial. A number of the niche sites that I have produced have hit the top of Google on the strength of the coding and content alone.

I have a life away from the computer. When I am not designing websites I enjoy being in the great outdoors, climbing, mountain biking, trail running and walking, with a preference for mountains rather than farmland as you can probably guess from the site image!
