A guided history walk of Crosspool will depart at 10am from St Columba’s church on Tuesday 30 June.
The walk is led by Jan Millward and will take in historical places of interest in the Crosspool area with interesting stories about the people who lived and worked here. It’ll take about an hour and a half.
And if you don’t fancy the official history walk, get yourself a copy of Crosspool Chronicles walking guide, which will be on sale at the street market on Sunday 28 June and locally throughout festival week.
The walks cover Crosspool, Sandygate, Lydgate, Bell Hagg and Tapton Hill right back to 1695, looking at who lived here and where and what they did. There are lots of old photos and stories to enjoy.
