This walk is based on the recent research and subsequent nationwide media interest of a WW2 RAF Hurricane pilot who ended up on Lihou Island one night in April 1941 after parachuting out of his aircraft when it ran out of fuel after giving chase to a German bomber
This story is currently being made into a mini documentary film.
We walk the exact route he took that night which ended up with him having something to eat and drink in a local couple's house before he was taken away by the authorities to a prisoner-of-war camp in Germany.
At the end of the walk there'll be a very special 'reveal'
Please note we will be walking over rough uneven terrain, a rocky beach and the causeway to Lihou, so a degree of fitness is required. Suitable footwear is advised
For information, the local media may come down at some point.
