Following his talk in April, join Cliff Lea for a walk along the River Hipper.

The walk follows the line of the river, identifying traces that remain of the many businesses that once worked here in this old industrial area, and past the ruins of both Walton Mill and Cannon Mill which sadly are still awaiting futures and redevelopment of their sites.

This is a 2-3-mile briskish walk on roads and footpaths in suburbs.  Dress for the weather and wear suitable footwear.

Cost: £5
