Event description

Description

To coincide with the upcoming publication of Dr A Whiteford's book 'An Enormous Reckless Blunder' we are delighted to offer a fantastic opportunity to visit some of the sites featured, in the company of the author himself. Dr Whiteford plans to visit the site of the Lewis Chemical Works in Marybank and the old brickworks at Garrabost. There are two sections to the walk, although not long the terrain is very rough and potentially very wet.

This excursion has limited places as we will be required to transport walkers between sites and as such booking is essential.
