Dr Bijan Omrani is the author of a number of highly acclaimed books including Asia Overland and Caesar's Footprints. He has been researching the relatively unknown history of Shute - its buildings and people for many years and has discovered an extraordinary history of its changing landscape, fortunes and individuals. Bijan has previously given a number of sell-out talks on its history but he continues to discover new aspects. He will be walking and talking you around its most significant buildings and sights including Shute Barton, the Gate House, Shute House, St Michael's Church, the Shute Turkey Oak, the walled gardens and amusing you with tales from the past. The walk will involve some uneven ground and some ascent up unmetalled tracks.
