The author Carl Flint holding the illustrated walking guide to Ledbury

“A Malvern man has published his fifth book of local walks, the first one to focus on the town of Ledbury. Carl Flint, who lives in the Link, has already published four volumes of A Pictorial Guide to the Malvern Hills. Now he has turned his attention to Ledbury and its surroundings. The book, Walks in and Around Ledbury, features QR codes linked to YouTube videos. With a scan of the code using a mobile phone, a soundbite plays alongside pictures displayed on the phone, enhancing the experience of the walk.” – See the Full Article on the Malvern Gazette Site.
