A self-led walk inspired by a Bristol poet has opened at a North Somerset National Trust site.
Wraxall’s Tyntesfield house has created a walk based on the works of Hannah More, one of the most influential women of her time before her death in 1833.
A successful poet, playwright and campaigner, Hannah was a champion of social reform, female education and the abolition of slavery.
For the first time, visitors will find her work on poetry boards located in the woodland after the house’s research team rediscovered some of her old work.
Tyntesfield curator, Sue Hayward, said: “Hannah’s poems provide a fascinating glimpse into her early career.
“It’s wonderful to think that the natural beauty of the woodland was a crucial source of inspiration for her.
“People will be able to explore the beauty of the Tyntesfield landscape through the poems written here.”
