Gilbert Bayes Virtual Walk 5pm, Saturday 18th April

5pm, Saturday, 18th April

Yes, I still doing a walk even in this lockdown! it is a virtual walk and will be in real time.  With the help of modern technology, principally the app called Zoom we are going to take a walk around Somers Town exploring the art of Gilbert Bayes, whose ‘Art for the People’ is revealed. Described as the fairy tale district by one author we will learn about the inspiration behind the finials, statues and wall plaques, be it Hans Christian Andersen, Nursery Rhymes or the tales of the Saints.

The Eventbrite link is here.

For this enterprise there will be a minimum £1 donation.

If unsure about signing up for the walk email me in good time so I can try to help you.



A previous (Barbican area) walk from  Monday, 19th November 2019

Short walk full of surprises led by Hidden London Walks guide and Somers Town History Club regular Steve McCarthy. Oliver Cromwell, William ShakeSpeare  and Arthur Scargill  are a just a few of the people who get a mention on this walk.  Find out why and how John Milton fell over and how this small event changed British history. Rediscovery some vanished streets. All this and a bit of brutalism architecture. Moderate walk some of which will be indoors. We will stop for tea (price included) when the need arises.

Looking forward to it.

Really enjoyed this walk , very interesting with lots of theatrics,   what  a great way to help remember some amazing previously unknown facts.  Thank you Stephen for the extra time you spent with us .

I am so impressed by your knowledge Steve and the lovely atmosphere you create with your anecdotes and quizzes. Thank you so much.
