Murder walk was fascinating
I saw advertised a murder mystery walk in Arnold on October 30.
I went along not expecting many others to be interested but as it was a fine night and it was free, I thought I'd give it a go.
When I arrived at the Robin Hood in Arnold, the starting point, I was surprised to find
that I had been joined by more than 100 other people.
The walk was led by Bob Massey, a local historian who coped very well with the large numbers and provided a fascinating incite into Arnold's somewhat murky past.
A lady had a few of Bob's books, which were very soon sold out. I did not manage to
get one but was told they were stocked by MSR News so went straight round the next
day and bought some volumes. The stories on the walk and in the books were
Thanks to everyone involved for a great night.
