Event description

Description

In the 1930s the Czech footwear firm BATA opened a factory in the village, a striking modernist design inspired in part by Bauhaus ideas. Workers accomodation a school and a cinema were also built. The factory was closed down in 2005 but is now a conservation area, and we'll take a look at it on the walk. Rob will tell the story of the factory and its surrounding estate and we will move at a slow pace to allow time to take photographs.

This is a shorter version of Rob's walk Czech Shoes and Mucking Flats
