Welcome back to a new series of ACE Stories for the Culturally Curious! As the days lengthen and our horizons begin to expand once again, over the following weeks we invite you to ‘take a walk’ with us in different parts of the UK, as we profile the natural history and cultural legacies of a diverse array of landscapes – including nature reserves, different parts of the coastline and some Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
