I’ve had approaches from various local groups over the years asking if I’d give a talk to their members on the history of the Goyt Valley. But I’ve always managed to find an excuse to avoid it. Not least because I’m not great at public speaking. But also because it would take a fair amount of preparation, and I prefer walking to working.

But with lockdown sparking an explosion in the use of Zoom, I thought this might be the perfect time to gird my loins and create a presentation, using some of the many photos and maps I’ve managed to collect over the last decade for this website.

I ran the first one last week, hosted by Catherine from South West Peak Landscape Partnership. Click below to view the fruits of my labours…

It lasted for just over 40 minutes, and there was a 30 minute question and answer session at the end. I’d be happy to run it again if anyone might be interested. Just leave a comment below, or get in touch using the contact page.
