book cover image And Did Those Feet Visitors can’t walk five yards in Britain and Ireland without tripping over something historic.

However, many take the car, so they miss the landmarks.

 

 

Do drivers know they are following the same path as the Tolpuddle Martyrs, or racing past the exact spot where King Harold was killed at the Battle of Hastings? In And Did Those Feet, Charlie Connelly journeys on foot alongside Boudicca’s ghost in Norfolk and relives Bonnie Prince Charlie’s flight to Skye. There is a price to be paid, of course. Connelly suffers broken toes, becomes trapped in the Scottish Parliament and meets a surprising number of old women in woolly hats. However, he leaves the keys at home.
