The two and a half mile walk will follow footpaths around Kestle Barton and Helford and involve climbing a few stiles, occasional muddy tracks are also likely to be encountered. There will be a maximum of eight places on the walk to ensure that everyone is fully involved in the shared experience.

Math Southam is a teacher and ornithologist who has spent the past 35 years birding in the west of Cornwall. He is a regular contributor to the BTO (British Trust for Ornithology) BirdTrack project.

A Photo Walk

with Jem Southam

Thursday 30 May
2pm – 4pm

Fully Booked

Jem Southam will lead a walk from Kestle Barton during which he hopes to discuss approaches to photographing landscapes. The genre of ‘Landscape’ has gone through a period of significant transition during the past forty years, stimulated in part by a growing understanding of just how complex our relations to the places we live in and walk through are. Participants are invited to bring both cameras, thoughts and questions.

Email info@kestlebarton.co.uk or phone 01326 231811 (after 1 April) to book a place on the walk.

These events are supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
