‘And Did Those Feet’

Welcome to the new site.

I  have not yet had time to load the vast content of the old site, but I am working on it!  But you can read the original blog here .

This site is about London, archaeology, history and literary history, and more generally, heritage and museums.

I have a large repertory of walks, tours, and lectures  in my backpack.   I mostly give them for two excellent organisations. London Walks, and Road Scholar.

Road Scholar Programmes

My next study tour for Road Scholar is ….well who knows!   One of the tours I do is called ‘Quintessential Britain’ which takes in London, Oxford, Bath, Stonehenge, Cotswold, Chester, Wales, Haworth, York, Edinburgh and other places en route.

Once upon a safe time in the summer I gave a programme  called ‘London’s Neighbourhoods‘  which is a great short tour of London with a day in the East End taking in the Street Art, a Day in the City, Greenwich and Bermondsey.
