‘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.

Physical Walks for London Walks

The good news is that I have just restarted doing real physical Guided Walks again for London Walks.  The first one was on 27th May, and very enjoyable it was to get out there and walk around the City.  Then the Thursday Archaeology Walk is every Thursday evening at 6.30 at Bank Underground Station.   To book click here

I will be doing every other week, and a  colleague, Leo Heaton the other week.    Later we plan to do another walk in the afternoon.  I am also putting together a series of special, repertory walks for London walks running throughout the summer.  To book click here

Virtual Walks

Meanwhile I am on my fifth season of Virtual Guided Walks.  For more details of the programme click here:

List of All Guided Walks.

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 ….maybe,  Sept 2021. Its a tour 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.

 

A complete list of my repertory of walks. lectures, study tours can be found here:
