Edward Thomas Poetry Places
is a website set up to identify the places that inspired the poems of Edward Thomas and encourage people to walk in his footsteps. Through his published and unpublished writings, including his field note books and letters, as well as other contemporary sources, and also walking the walks that he did, it is possible to locate or identify more closely the places which he drew on for many of his poems. The website will be updated regularly with new posts on the locations of individual poems and the walks that can be taken around each.
