Jack Cornish, Head of Paths at the Ramblers' Association*, has dedicated the last five years to walking the forgotten footpaths of England and Wales.
This week's Lucky Dip into What's On Richmond has pulled out an early event in this year's Richmond Walking and Book Festival. At 19:30 on Saturday 16th, at Richmond Town Hall, Jack will give an illustrated talk about his quest and his forthcoming Penguin book. Did you know that by 2026 some 10,000 miles of historic foothpaths and bridleways - 10,000 miles! - stand to be lost? If you value Britain's ancient tracks (think of the local Jagger Lane and of Swaledale's famous Corpse Way) then you need to be there.
Tickets are available for £10 (£5 concessions) at booksandboots.org.
* They want us to call them just The Ramblers. Bah to that!
