Current schedule & latest news

During the season (early April to mid-October) details of the walks, boat trips and slideshows that I and my husband, Chas Wood, are offering will be posted here and updated on a weekly basis.

From late July I will be offering public guided walks on St Mary's and the off-islands and 'A Cruise in the Past' boat trips again. Private walks for up to 10 people will also be available. There will be no slideshows or holidays.

Details of each week's activities will be posted below.

Numbers will be limited so walks should be booked in advance with payment by BACS transfer. Tickets for 'A Cruise in the Past' will be available from the St Mary's Boatmen's Association kiosk on the Quay.
