Walking Conversations in Sheffield and Robin Hood’s Bay

On 27th May 2021 Maxwell joined professor Maggie O’Neill of University College Cork, for a virtual walk!

Supported by the Walking Publics/Walking Arts initative – the ‘virtual’ walk’ is a walk taking place at the same time by people in different geographical locations. Walkers are linked by via mobile phones or other mobile devices so that they are able to talk to each other in realtime and share images during the walk.


While Maggie chose to walk around Robin Hoods Bay


Maxwell walked through beautiful woody areas near Gleadless Valley.
