Come take a unique guided tour with Peter Aylmer and his latest book Harlow Sculpture Walks. Peter’s tour will be more than about sculpture as you will also gain an appreciation of the layout of Harlow, and the planning principles that Sir Frederick Gibberd brought to the town.

The tour also includes a visit to the Gibberd Gallery where you can view the exhibition New Town New Art, a selection of artworks recently gifted to the Harlow Art by the Foundation for Essex Arts.

Peter Aylmer lives in Sheering, the first village east out of Harlow. His rich understanding of Essex and its countryside started young, visiting his uncle’s farm in the Roding’s. Since discovering walking as a young man, he’s since climbed many hills and walked many long-distance paths all over Britain, but still relishes the surprise on people’s faces when he tells them that some of his favourite walking is within his home county.

As well as his Trailman series, Peter is the author of the Cicerone Press guides Walking in Essex (second edition, 2019 and Walking in London (second edition, 2023). Peter’s website trailman.co.uk has details of many walks across Britain.
