Walking Book Group: Nicola Ford and Avebury
The opening event of this year’s programme sees the festival teaming up with Salisbury’s Walking Book Group – a cohort of dedicated local readers who combine their book discussions with a ramble in the nearby countryside. This literary walk will take place around the World Heritage site of Avebury, where we are delighted to be joined by archeologist and crime writer Nicola Ford, author of the critically acclaimed Hills and Barbook series. The walk will focus on Nicola’s debut novel, The Hidden Bones, with Nicola explaining the inspirations behind her writing and insights from her archeological work.
The walk itself is approximately five miles in length and will begin and end in the centre of Avebury. It will start outside The Red Lion in Avebury at 10.30 am and is expected to take approximately 2½-3 hours. Avebury is approximately one hour’s drive from Salisbury, with one National Trust car park at Avebury itself (free to NT members).
Places on the walk are free, but booking is required, both for numbers and so organisers can contact with further information and/or arrangements for bad weather.
Legal disclaimer: please note the length of the walk before booking and that, given this is Autumn in England, walkers are expected to come wearing relevant footwear and suitable walking gear. The walk will take place on a mixture of local tracks and footpaths: for legal reasons, all those coming on the walk do so at their own risk.
