On 16th April 2019, Wiltshire History Man, Nick Baxter, gave a guided walk around Devizes. It was a virtual walk given to residents and guests at McCarthy and Stone's Shackleton Place development.
Nick has now given virtual walks around both Devizes and Marlborough. The first was given at McCarthy and Stone's Cannings Place in Marlborough. Nick is here explaining the significance of the Corn Exchange in Devizes's Victorian past.
On 18th April 2019 the Gazette and Herald reported on Nick's very successful talk, "Nick Baxter's walking tours are fascinating, and all attendees enjoyed the event - we all learned something new about Devizes without having to leave our seats."
On 5th February 2019 Nick gave his talk on Matthew Wilkinson, the first Master of Marlborough College, to the Devizes branch of the Wiltshire Family History Society.
A thank you card from Barbara Fuller was much appreciated, "A most interesting and well presented evening."
