I've used your camera map many times while trying to work out what picture fits where. Then try to link information to locations too, either by finding a link or by writing something new. Then create walks that start at a place of interest or somewhere easy to find (eg Ford's Hospital or end of a road) and finish a reasonable distance/time later, preferably at something worth visiting (eg Herbert Art Gallery). Once you've got some decent walks ...... Themed walks could be:- Blitz. Medieval Coventry. History of cars/transport. Textiles. Religion. Schools. Guilds. Pub trailsNot quite the ultimate solution to a themed walk (!) ...... but .... as part of the Coventry's National Heritage Weekend I am mounting a display on 'The History of Coventry Godiva Harriers and other clubs in the city during the last 140 years'. I have devised a one and a half mile 'Godiva Trail' which takes in part of the Spon End area which played a significant part in the Godiva Harriers development. The trail is detailed in the display and there is a give away leaflet.
