Radical orator John Thelwall speaking at Copenhagen Fields in London

In the summer of 1797, Citizen John left the shadow of government spies in London to visit Samuel Coleridge in Nether Stowey and then stay in the Stroud area. We recreate Citizen John’s adventures with a performative walk around Stroud.

Meet at the Lockkeeper’s Cafe at Walbridge, Stroud, GL5 3JS at 1.00pm (2 min walk from Stroud Train Station). A leisurely walk along the Stroudwater Canal and then a climb to Rodborough Common. We then descend to The Prince Albert for a pint or two. Probably there be there by 3 o’clock.
