The Sir Edward Heath University Lectures
2021 - 2024

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the 1970-74 Heath government, the Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation – which owns and runs Arundells, Heath’s house in the Cathedral Close, Salisbury – is organising a rolling series of keynote lectures on recurrent issues in British politics that often remain as live today as they were half a century ago.

Major commentators or practitioners will talk about what happened in Britain in the first half of the 1970s, and how and why so many of the questions of that era remain unresolved today. The series will take place in universities across the country to maximise the opportunities of a new generation to learn about the politics of the ‘day before yesterday’.

The Sir Edward Heath Inaugural Walk

Thursday 5th May 2021

The Sir Edward Heath Walk focusses on the village of Elsdon with views of the Coquet Valley, Redesdale, Billsmoor Deer Park, Elsdon Mote Hills, Low Carrick (a redundant Victorian school) and Otterburn Training Camp where Sir Edward trained in artillery during World War Two. 

The walk includes rough terrain so sturdy footwear is recommended and, in order to fully enjoy the views, access to binoculars is advised. 

The route is a mixture of public rights of way and private land on Dunshiel.
