About this event

The history of the Don Valley Brick Works and its surroundings is tied to stories both romantic and grisly. Hidden among the industrial relics and the bulrushes are tales of lust and disaster, of love poems and séances, of scandalous affairs and bone-chilling murder. On this tour, explore some of those hidden tales of the Brick Works with author and historian Adam Bunch, uncovering stories of love and death that have shaped the site and the city that surrounds it.

Free admission! Donations to support The Word On The Street's mission to champion literacy are welcome.
