Book Club: The Book of Trespass by Nick Hayes
Wednesday 24 January 2024. Soup 6.45pm, 7pm Book Club
The vast majority of our country is entirely unknown to us because we are banned from setting foot on it. By law of trespass, we are excluded from 92 per cent of the land and 97 per cent of its waterways, blocked by walls whose legitimacy is rarely questioned. But behind them lies a story of enclosure, exploitation and dispossession of public rights whose effects last to this day.
The Book of Trespass takes us on a journey over the walls of England, into the thousands of square miles of rivers, woodland, lakes and meadows that are blocked from public access. By trespassing the land of the media magnates, Lords, politicians and private corporations that own England, Nick Hayes argues that the root of social inequality is the uneven distribution of land.Read more

Monthly discussion-based meeting for photographers from amateur to experienced, to share work, get feedback and explore new ideas.
The brief for this month's photography group is to bring along a photo to share on the theme of ‘Change’. If the weather is good we are going to try to go out photograph on the beach after the discussion.
