The author and publisher Andrew Swift will lead a history walk around Bath starting at 7pm.

The walk will visit some of the sites that were associated with the distribution of  “The Rights of Man” – selling it, giving it away, where people were arrested and the thuggery that was stirred up by the gentry who wanted to suppress the publication.

Andrew’s knowledge is extensive and the walks I’ve been on before with him have been excellent – did you know that in his early life Paine joined Captain Death on his privateer the Terrible?

The meeting point is on the Orange Grove (near Bath Abbey) outside Garfunkels at 7pm.
