Walking the Roman Wall

Ruth Raymer & Chris McCully


Lewis Gardens, High Street
Colchester, CO1 1JH

Box Office:

(01206) 713700

Essex-based writers Ruth Raymer and Chris McCully take you on a literary journey following Colchester’s Roman Wall.

An adventure for the curious, Ruth and Chris will tell stories and contemplate and question this ancient structure as they go, with the aim to develop a range of short writings about the wall, and about walking and exploring.

Ruth Raymer is a recent graduate of the University of Essex. She spends her spare time walking with her dog, Jasper, through the lanes and fields around North Essex, composing short stories along the way. Ruth is currently researching material for a project on the theme of Walking Home. walkwriteon.com @WritingWalking
