  • Saturday 19th September, 11am – Walk Back to WW2
    In this walk we’ll discover how the Second World War impacted on the town and its people. It’s a story of evacuees, industrial challenges, foreign soldiers, allotments and the occasional bomb. Reserve a place.

These guided walks follow routes around the town centre and some of the outlying streets. They generally take around 1 hour 30 minutes and follow an easy flat route with the odd short hill (Castle Street, Wicker Hill, etc.) and may include the odd diversion involving steps and uneven ground. They will not be strenuous and should be suitable for those with minor mobility issues or using mobility aids. Please wear comfortable shoes. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed. If you have any concerns please contact the Museum on 01225 751339 and we will gladly advise.

If the weather forecast is particularly bad please check our website and social media on the day in case we have to cancel the walk.
