In Their Footsteps: William Mitchell

This walk tells the story of the infamous events of 17 August 1906 when naval stoker William Mitchell entered the town with a loaded rifle, firing indiscriminately and tragically shooting dead Margaret Treble. It will examine the most recent research into the case and explore the possibility that Mitchell, who was found guilty of murder, was the victim of a miscarriage of justice.

Our walks start and finish outside the entrance to the Museum. Sturdy walking boots are recommended. Dogs are welcome.
