Step nack in time with Tim's history walks

This summer, why not join local historian, Tim Porter, on a series of gentle, history themed, walks that will take you back through time.

Taking place in various locations around Cotswold District, these walks are the perfect way to spend a relaxing, interesting summer afternoon or evening.

The series starts with 'Hawling - a shrunken village', on Tuesday 15th May 6pm - 8pm. Walkers should meet at the church. This is followed by 'Northleach and Hampnett - Victorian vicars and villains' on Monday 4th June, 2pm - 4pm. Meet at the Old Prison, Northleach (previously Cotswold Heritage Centre.)

'Lower Lemington - a vanished village' is next, on Thursday 12th July, 6pm - 8pm. Meet by Lower Lemington church (1 mile north east of Moreton-in-Marsh.) Finishing the series is 'Ampney Crucis - a tale of two churches' which takes place on Tuesday 31st July, 2pm - 4pm. Meet outside the school.

Each walk will last approximately 2 hours and will be a maximum of 2 miles long, with rest stops along the way.

Tickets cost 6.50 per walk with 10% discount for annual season ticket holders and Friends of the Corinium Museum. For more details or to book, please contact Corinium Museum on 01285 655611.
