Episode 4

A path through the trees

This episode is all about trees!

We find out about Bath's plans for a series of tree trails and meet the trees in Hedgemead Park with tree enthusiast Fiona Bell.

Woodland Trust site manager Joe Middleton gives us his expert knowledge and experience with ash dieback.

And we go wassailing at Bath City Farm with 'January' played by Oliver Langdon from Kilter Theatre Company. Tom Sheppard, High Sheriff of Somerset and Cllr June Player, Mayor of Bath make an appearance.

"It was excellent, really interesting and informative. The details and the way it was done, with three women farmers as key players, was really refreshing. I liked the voiceover and all the interviews." (Footprints, season 2 listener)

"All your topics on the Footprints podcast were relevant and fascinating to me as an older, female solo walker for the first time in the U.K." (Footprints season 1 listener)
