A walk with John Clare

Sunday 14 July

This walk will give you the opportunity to stroll along in the footsteps of the poet John Clare and learn about the landscape that featured in his poetry.

It has been organised by the John Clare Society, the John Clare Cottage and the Langdyke Countryside Trust and sets off at 1pm on the Sunday afternoon of the John Clare Society Festival in Helpston.

The five-mile guided walk around the Helpston area will be led by Carry Akroyd of the John Clare Society and Langdyke’s
David Cowcill.

The programme includes an introduction to Clare’s life and works with readings appropriate to the places visited and commentary on the countryside he loved.

It includes a cream tea at the John Clare Cottage with the opportunity to undertake an audio-tour of the cottage and gardens.

Places are strictly limited and bookings will be made on a first come, first-served basis and the cost per person is £9 – payable on the day.

To find out more (including joining instructions) and to book your place, please contact Simon Bysshe by email to sby121@btinternet.com or ringing 01733 253164
