A walk for health, a walk to exhaust boisterous boys, a punishment walk, a performance?

On 23 July 1856, some 60 boys from the Bath Workhouse, led by their schoolmaster Mr William Winkworth, completed a 16 mile walk from the Workhouse in Odd Down around the northern fringes of Bath. Sons of the city's poor, orphans, or whose parents were also Workhouse residents, through the summer of 2017 I will be retracing their steps. Join me on foot or online @walknowlive

The forbidding structure of Bath Union Workhouse still stands overlooking the city at Odd Down, a walled warning to the 19th century poor. Renamed St Martin’s Hospital, now largely operated by Richard Branson’s Virgin health care it is a branded warning to the poor of the 21st century.

The walks take place monthly on a Wednesday, the first, in May, coinciding with the Fringe Arts Bath 2017 walking arts theme, Embodied Cartography and the last, in September, linking up with the new Bath Walking Festival. These are not history walks more a slow conversation over 5 months about poverty, welfare, well being, respect for the dead and responsibility for the living.

Register for the May walk: Wed 31 May
