Thinking Thursdays is a weekday initiative from Southampton City Council Cultural Services, exploring the rich history and heritage of the town. Each session is different, but it could be a talk, tour or something entirely different!
Step out onto the Common with historians Ally Hayes and Wendy Stokes from Bevois Mount History Society.
The walk will begin at the south entrance to the Common at the blue gates (at the junction of Cemetery Road and Northlands Road; What3Words: posts.stars.frozen; OS Grid Reference: SU 418137). The tour will last about 90 minutes and finish at The Cowherds.
Learn about Southampton’s jewel – from the zoo to the racecourse, the deepest artesian well in the country and the last hanging! Regrettably the walk is unsuitable for those with mobility issues.
Ally and Wendy’s book, ‘A Walk Around the Common’, and other publications, are available at October Books.
