Join writer and 'laureate of walking', Duncan Minshull for a ramble around Blanchland.

Minshull’s latest anthology takes us on a series of winding strolls through the eyes and imaginations of twenty contemporary authors. From the reluctant Harland Miller (I’ve always hated walking) to the religious pilgrimage of Agnes Poirier, each offers a unique perspective on the world. Locations range from Karachi to Foulness Island, and the life-enriching experience of taking a walk shines through them all.

Two course meal and glass of wine included in the ticket price.
