Roger Furniss: Ted Hughes and Exmoor's Rivers

For those who are lucky enough to live in or have access to the South West of England this month, there’s an exciting Hughes-related event taking place as part of the Simonsbath Festival. On Wednesday 22nd May 2019 at 19.30 in St Luke’s Church, Simonsbath, Roger Furniss - a friend of Hughes’s from the Devonian fishing community - will give a talk on Hughes’s love of the rivers of Devon, fishing and on the current conservation efforts on these rivers.
