One of the creators of Walks Past – a series of free, self-guided London history walks – has launched two new routes, exploring the history of Wanstead Park.

“Last summer, to mark the 300-year anniversary of Wanstead House, I ran a series of live walks on behalf of the Friends of Wanstead Parklands. These were well received, so I decided to create online versions of the routes with audio commentaries. The guides are designed to be used on a phone with internet access,” said Russell Kenny.
