THE BROOMS Green Ladies Club will be following in the footsteps of poets, for their next outing.

Members will tackle the new "Poets' Cottages Walk", which starts at Preston Church and covers landscapes and views that would have been well-known to the Dymock Poets group.

The ladies will set off at 5.45pm, on Monday August 18.

The Dymock Poets were a group of writers who either lived or visited the Dymock area, prior to the outbreak of the First World War.

Members included Robert Frost, Rupert Brooke and Edward Thomas.
