Historic Walking Tour – the Radical Women of Saffron Walden


Wednesday 10th November, 10am-12.30noon
Saturday 13th November, 10am-12.30noon

Historic creative writing walks with author Hannah Jane Walker on the theme of local radical non-conformist women through time.

This is a free event, though standard admission charges still apply to the museum (adult: £2.50; concessions: £1.25; children: free).

The walk will be exploring radical historical women of Saffron Walden. Each of these women are attached to a specific site within the town. We will begin our journey at Saffron Walden Museum, and then walk between sites. At each site you will learn a little about the radical woman in question and explore their identity and try to bring them to life through simple accessible creative writing exercises. No experience of creative writing is necessary.

The walks will meet at the museum at 10am, then go out on the tour around town, before returning to the museum around 12 noon as the last stop on the tour.

The walk will cover roughly 4k in distance.

Accessibility – all on public pavements. Please note: Saffron Walden is a town with some streets where the pavement is so narrow that scooter and pram access are severely compromised. We will be using some of these paths such as the piece of path along Church Street.

If you wish to attend the walk you can book online via Art Tickets https://saffron-walden-museum.arttickets.org.uk/ or phone or email the museum directly 01799 510333 or email museum@uttlesford.gov.uk
