About this event

Walking with Cameras - Guided Tour of Topsham

Join us on Thursday 7th July, 2022 for a guided tour and photo-walk around the wonderful coastal town of Topsham.

This photowalk will provide participants with a guided tour (led by a guide from the Topsham Community Association) of Topsham and will highlight points of interest within the estuary port.

Topsham has fabulous views along the Exe Estuary for photographing, plenty of independent shops , antiques ( including several floors to browse at the former Customs House on the quay.) and characterful buildings to discover ( including elegant 17c Dutch-style merchant houses along The Strand).

This Photo-walk will take place on Thursday 7th July and it will begin at 1:00pm at Holman Way car-park and will last for around 90 minutes.

This tour will finish at the Museum and there will be an opportunity to partake in refreshments in the museum's tea rooms and wander around the museum and look at their collections.

We have some tables reserved, but if the weather allows, then refreshments can be taken outside in their lovely garden with a choice of sunny or shady spots under the apple trees, sheltered by surrounding walls.

Once the tour is over, it is up to you to further explore, if you want to.....

Visit the museums' exhibitions

Discover more of Topsham by taking a walk towards the estuary mudflats and Bowling Green Marsh RSPB Reserve area (home to a vast array of water-birds including avocet, dunlin, little ringed plover, and little egret.) or choose to have a mooch around the town shops and cafe's .

For more information about Topsham head to visit South Devon or Visit Exeter (where some of the above text was taken from)

The Chasing the Light and Walking with Cameras Project

This photowalk is part of a larger project called Chasing the Light and Walking with Cameras. This is a 3-year project in Exeter that will provide 6, 14-week participatory photography programmes and 64 photo-walks trips. In addition, there will be 2 participant curated exhibitions and each participant who takes part in participatory photography programmes will curate their own personal photo-book. This project has been funded by The National Lottery Community Fund's Reaching Communities Programme and it will enable participants to create their own photo-story, build a portfolio of images and take part in a fun and creative activity.

Walking with Cameras

The Walking with Cameras programme will provide an alternative means of social interaction and creative community engagement. Participants will be given the opportunity to visit a location for 2, 3 or 4 hours and create their own images or take part in a photographic task. The locations will be varied and will include local urban areas, country houses, farms, nature reserves, the coastline and the countryside.

Each participant will have the opportunity of publishing their best images via Meridian Raw CIC’s Flickr Galleries (internet-based photography albums). This will enable all the participants taking part in the photo-walks to see and comment on other participants images and help create an ongoing dialogue.
