Episode 8

And finally it's the festival itself!

Welcome to our second episode in September - this one following Bathscape's highly successful 2021 walking festival!

I caught up with Lucy Bartlett before she went off on a much deserved rest, to find out how the festival had gone.

Walks - we hear in turn from:

My Postcard Walk to You with Victoria Wells
