Blue Bermondsey has produced a series of free audio walks for children and families to explore South Bermondsey, writes Simon Throssell…

The stories encourage children to reimagine the world around them with amazing characters told by a range of professional storytellers.

A narrator will guide families through the story and tell you when it is time to walk to the next location.

Activity sheets are also available for children to do while out on the trails or at home.

There are currently five audio walks available, which all start at various points in South Bermondsey.

Story one takes families on an adventure through Shuttleworth Park accompanied by Anansi, a very clever spider from Africa.

In ‘The Feathers’, children will find out how a simple pillow helped a little girl called Rivkah educate a loose-tongued friend.

Hear about the wild adventures of Romany traveller Richard O’Neill by Macks Road; ‘How the leopard got his spots’ in the grounds of St James’ church with Usifu Jalloh, and the Nigerian ‘New Yam Festival’ along the Thames Path.
