From the Woods to the River with Stephen Daniels


Professor Stephen Daniels invites us to appreciate the wider setting of Colwick Woods, by considering the panoramic views of the Trent valley from the site, and how they reveal past and present relationships between the city, the landscape and the River Trent.

Stephen Daniels is professor of Cultural Geography and Director of AHRC Landscape and Environment programme at the University of Nottingham's Faculty of Social Sciences.

Our guided ‘walk-and-talks’ are a fun and informative way to explore the woods and the surrounding landscape. Each session will consider different aspects of the site from different disciplinary positions and different moments in time. These events are perfect for people interested in local history, nature, art history, and the British landscape. 

All events are free, booking is recommended as places are limited
