This project marks the start of a programme of seasonal walks which Hereford College of Arts wishes to explore. Part of the unique quality of Hereford is its status as a small, specialist arts college situated in a beautiful landscape that has been mostly untouched by industrialisation.
The idea for planning this particular walk, and the accompanying research, came from conversations with college principal Abigail Appleton and colleagues during a landscape lunch.
The walk intends to celebrate International Women's Day by sharing short narratives of some of the women whose stories wound through Herefordshire in some way; stories that are creative, militant, courageous and inspiring.
Thank-you to Joe Kerr, Jane Barton, and Hereford Cathedral for sharing interesting stories with us. This is very much a work in progress; we would be happy to hear any suggestions or additions.
