Jane’s Walk 2013

 CTPC Jane's Walk Poster

National walking month kicks off in Colchester with the world famous Jane’s Walks and the sun has even come out to join us!

 Jane’s Walk celebrates the ideas and legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs by getting local people showing off their local area through a series of free led walks. This international event happens every year at the start of May and its back in Colchester for the 3rd year running.

 There are many guided walks planned for the Bank Holiday weekend of the 3rd to the 6th of May with plenty of local people getting involved there is something for everyone, CTPC and the University of Essex are even hosting some walks.

 Join Kate Dunton with her short lunch time walk around the beautiful campus of the University of Essex and learn of its tales, urban myths and history. The walk starts outside the Lakeside Café at 1pm on the 3rd of May and lasts one hour.

 We ourselves are leading two lunch time tours exploring Colchester’s transport history where we rediscover the forgotten tramlines that still lay beneath the surface of our town! The first, starting outside the Town Hall, takes place on the 3rd of May, from 12:15 till 1pm. But encase you can’t make that one why not join us for a picnic (weather permitting) on Hilly Fields during the extended tour taking place on the 6th of May, again meeting outside the Town Hall at 12:15 but lasting till 2pm.

There is plenty going on and we encourage you to get involved and enjoy yourself, find out more information and see what other tours are being given  here.
