Description

Did you know the world’s most prolific serial killer was born and raised in St George? That Queen Elizabeth I processed in state along Church Road? And that the Fire Engine pub had nothing to do with putting out fires?

Walk through 800 years and see a rare medieval survivor and the grand tombs and monuments of the Victorian industrialists, whose collieries and factories swept away the old market gardens, changing the landscape forever. And the dark underside that created Amelia Dyer, ‘baby farmer’. Meet St George’s Saints, Sinners and the many ordinary folk in between – whose lives were every bit as extraordinary. Even locals will see something new.

“Fantastic theatrical walk’ – @sophontrack on Twitter

“You’re in for a treat” – Kathryn Davis, Director of Tourism, Visit West
