Hardy, Barnes and Young Walk

In celebrating our inaugural Literary Festival we have published a new local walking map for literary enthusiasts and walkers alike. Join a walk around the town’s literary past will be launched at the Station Road entrance to Railway Gardens from 10am until 11.30am. 

There will be ‘Victorian’ guides at each significant point on the walk, plus a taste of a Victorian school room at St Mary’s Church Hall from 10am until 12.30pm. 

This is a circular walk of about 1½ miles and, at a leisurely pace, will take about an hour.

Printed maps will be available at the start of the walk.
