Learn about the historic village of Fotheringhay from local archaeologist, Dr Stephen Upex.
The story of Fotheringhay can be seen in its buildings and local landscape. This guided walk will also help you understand the clues to look for when exploring the history of other locations.
This outdoor event will involve a gentle stroll lasting 60 to 90 minutes. Walking will be predominantly on pavements but may include rough tracks and grass. Numbers will be limited to 25. Following the walk we hope there may be an opportunity, for those who wish, to enjoy an outdoor pub lunch at the Falcon. All participants need to pre-register.
FRAG members will be given priority until 16th June. Thereafter it will be first come, first served for all.
