I May Be Gone For Some Time
In 2014 Peter Hill attempted a 5,000 mile walk around the coast of Britain. I May Be Gone For Some Time is his journal of the forty-two week trek and Peter talks about the highs, lows and ice creams with enthusiasm and humour.
The Water Vole
The water vole is Britain’s fastest declining mammal. Christine Gregory’s illustrated talk explores what water voles are and how they live. She considers alien species, climate change and damaged ecosystems as well as the recovery of our rivers and the positive success stories of water vole re-introductions, habitat restoration and conservation.
