I came to the Heart of England early in my career as a translator and languages teacher and have come to love the variety of the landscape, history and cities of the area and now enjoy the opportunity to pass on my enthusiasm to others.

Special Interests

I began my guiding career in Stratford-upon-Avon which remains a favourite, but now enjoy bringing to light the history of other towns of our region, too, interpreting the stories written in the architecture of our buildings, whether ancient chapel or modern cathedral, as well as in the landscape and villages of our rural areas. To me both town and country offer fascinating insights into the inspiration of literary and musical celebrities, and many a passionate gardener has left a heritage well worth exploring.
