We have a year-round programme of free, guided walks led by our experienced walks guide Aly Mir. The walks have proved extremely popular: it seems that people have a real appetite for learning more about their local area. The scope of the walks has really grown. There are now over 90 individual walks, covering everything from the area’s literary history to its criminal past.
