WALK on Saturday 5 June 2010

Come for a walk with Sean Gubbins around St John-at-Hackney's churchyard, finishing with a climb up St Augustine's Tower. Hear the stories behind some of the names on the tombs: the poor as well as the great and the good; the Admiral who hired Darwin, immigrants, spies, Austrian aristocracy, the insane, and tales of rags-to-riches and riches-to-rags, plus many more. In partnership with Hackney Museum.
