A walk around Jude's 'Shaftesbury'

Friday 20th July, 1.30pm

What have a stonemason from Fawley, 4 obscure teachers, 2 Shastonians (one fictional), 3 Kings, a Saxon Nunnery, 27 pubs, thousands of buttons, carders, swanskin, pairs of soles and gloves, and finally 'dental' Tom Cobbley and ALL of US in common? Find out on visiting Shaftesbury's 'Greensand Rock', retracing the footsteps of literary protagonists Jude, Sue, Phillotson and Gillingham. A one mile walk let by THS member Rod Drew on firm surfaces, partly flat, partly undulating, in England's 'highest Saxon hilltop town'.
 
Tickets are £12 for non-THS-conference delegates. To book a place or for more information please contact Mike Nixon, THS Secretary, on 01305 251501, or email: info@hardysociety.org
