27 January 2019BBC on Keats and Cromarty

At our Christmas 2018 evening, one of our short talks was about the poet John Keats’ short time in Cromarty; here to catch a boat south, following his long walking tour through England, Ireland and Scotland.

The BBC had the same idea as us and on Sunday 6 January they broadcast a programme (called “Keats Goes North”) about this walking tour. The programme is available to listen again as a podcast on the BBC ‘Sounds’ website here:


It was reassuring to note that the BBC didn't add much that we didn’t, and good to see that the Cromarty History Society is once again leading where others follow: we had Rosemarkie Man first and we had the “Who lived in THIS house” story before the BBC did their version.

Come along to our 2019 evening talks to find out what else is new and exciting
