‘Virtual’ walks online encourage you to imagine a real-life walking route through the use of maps and contemporary photos, and also include historical illustrations. As we are not physically walking, we can cover the ground quite quickly, so an online tour lasts for 45 mins to an hour. If you live locally, they can also provide inspiration for daily exercise, which of course was useful during the COVID pandemic.

You will need access to a computer or tablet and a stable internet connection to appreciate these tours fully.

I very much enjoy being out on the streets leading real life guided walks, but there’s always a role for virtual tours too. If these and/or local history lectures are of interest, for example for a presentation to a community group, please contact me.

‘Thank you, Lesley for a fabulous talk, you’ve really conquered it! We all had a very enjoyable and informative afternoon’ 

‘No matter how well I think I know an area I always discover many new and fascinating facts on one of Lesley’s walks. Can’t wait to get walking again when it’s possible’
