A Summer Evening with F.W. Harvey, The Yorkley Walk – Friday 6th July 7.00 p.m.
We enjoyed a pleasant walk around Yorkley and heard the poems and the inspiration behind them. This guided walk around Yorkley featured many of F.W. Harvey’s best loved poems. Participants were given a map and led over a two hour walk following mostly level ground. In addition to featuring High View, the poet’s home for thirty years, the walk featured landmarks such as the Cut and Fry Cricket Pitch that evoke the poem The Catch and F.W. Harvey’s love of the game. The walk started and finished at the Nag’s Head for the weary to refresh themselves afterwards. This event was held during the ‘Coleford Festival of Words’ which took place from 2-7th July 2012
