This walk was promoted by Mostyn Art Gallery (www.mostyn.org), 'Artist Walking with Alison Lloyd', and shows the connection between the art of conversation within the group, the art of reading a picture (i.e. the map in hand), making your own pictures (i.e. taking photographs), and quoting authors who have written about the countryside in poems and books. It was very enlightening.
