Walking tour along Capel Street
June 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
HHP invites you to a public guided walking tour along Capel Street with local identity: Mr. Laurence Angwin, Saturday 24th June 2023 at 2pm.
North and West Melbourne have streets that are made for walking; During the Covid pandemic as we walked the streets for the good of our health (and the health of our dogs) many of us came to a fresh appreciation of the life around us.
We became familiar with the diversity of building shapes and sizes and the influence of time on our neighbourhoods; Our HHP members tell us, they are now wanting to know more.
This event a walk in Capel Street with Lawrence Angwin is a response to that wish. Come and take the opportunity learn about a particular street and see how it differs from or is familiar to others that you know.
