If you fancy exploring the area and finding more about Jefferies, you may be interested in a guided walk that is taking place on Sunday 9 May.
The Swindon Advertiser says:
I wrote my Masters dissertation about Jefferies, so I like to give him a plug now and then.
Participants should gather at the museum, next to Coate Water, for a 10.30am start.
The walk will start, alongside readings, led by Andrew Rossabi, along the east side of Coate Water, over Cicely’s Bridge, to the Gamekeeper’s Cottage at Hodson.
Here walkers will look around the garden and view the old thatched cottage and the bluebells in Hodson Woods.
The return will be along the west side of Coate Water stopping for lunch.
At 4.30 pm everyone will be welcome to explore Richard Jefferies’ home, watch the film Jefferies’ Land, and share readings from Jefferies’ works as well as those of author Edward Thomas, who he inspired.
