Talks by David Clarke


Click the thumbnail for a downloadable description of each talk, suitable for a handout.


















































Devising, walking and writing 1066 Harold’s Way gave David an insight into the fascinating events that led to the Battle of Hastings and the immediate aftermath. 


Walking the footpaths of Kent and Sussex and exploring the High Weald opened up opportunities to research in more detail the colourful history and industry which David is now able to share with you.


A successful lecturer and trainer, David has now been able to channel his enthusiasm into writing, leading walks and presenting talks on his walks and books. David has given talks to the National Trust, Ramblers Groups and History Societies highlighting the history surrounding the walk and the walk itself.


Whether it is a school talk, club meeting or group event, if you would like to find out a little more about the background to 1066 Harold's Way and other History Walks, topics, David is an experienced and anecdotal speaker who will bring the walks and talks to life.


Talks will be tailored to meet your needs and fees, dates and presentation details will be discussed on enquiry.


David's standard fee is £100 and reasonable petrol costs will be charged where necessary and advised prior to confirmation of the booking.


Copies of David's books will be available to purchase.

Hello David,

I just wanted to give you a big thank you from our group for a really wonderful talk yesterday. It certainly brought a number of the walking group to the talk, which I explained yesterday I wanted to do. Previously the group who come to the talks and the walking group have in the main kept themselves to themselves. I know hearing comments afterwards that we all learnt a lot about the villages round and about that we didn't know thank you.
