Armchair walks

Bath city centre – with all its history and heritage – may be off-limits to a lot of us at the moment but that doesn’t stop you taking an armchair ‘walk’ though its streets to learn more about its famous past inhabitants.

I just wanted to share a couple of links with you.

The first takes you to an online trail with a nautical connection and it’s one you can do on foot or – for most at the moment – read it at home.

It is for Admiral Lord Nelson and takes you around the people and places connected with his many stays in Bath.

This is a natural companion to Bath World Heritage’s own “City Trail” which has proved very popular in paper form and is now also available to download for the public.

Brian Hall – from The Nelson Society – told me: “I will be leading guided walks around the Nelson Trail as soon as the current restrictions are lifted and it is safe for us all.”

While we’re on the subject of walks, l am one of nearly ninety volunteers who make up the Mayor of Bath’s Honorary Corps of Guides and we too cannot wait to get back out on the streets of the city to show locals – and our visitors – around this gem of a World Heritage site.
