The Lost Paths
4.45pm - Join us as we gather at John Henry Brookes Building Reception for a guided walk, setting off at 17:00, through Headington.
6.30pm - Join us in Sir Kenneth Wheare Hall, Clerici Building, for a conversation with Jack Cornish, Head of Paths at The Ramblers and author of The Lost Paths: A History of How We Walk from Here to There
How are paths made, how are they lost, and how can they be reclaimed?
This Think Human Festival event will start with a guided walk through Headington’s many types of Rights of Way, before a discussion and Q&A session with Jack Cornish, Head of Paths at The Ramblers and author of the new book The Lost Paths: A History of How We Walk From Here to There (Penguin Books). Jack will reflect on the very long history of pathmaking, struggles over access and the future of policy as post-Covid recovery continues and post-Brexit policy evolves.
