Fort St. George Walk – Aug. 21, 2011

This is where it all began for Madras. Most of what came to be the Fort remains – the moats, ramparts, St Mary’s Church, neighbourhoods, bungalows . . .This tour brings you face to face with these places and shares stories of centuries gone by.

Starts at 8am. Lasts for 90mins. Assemble in parking lot opp. main gate of Fort at 7.45 am. Carry ID cards – this is a security zone. Carry water, light snacks.
Ends at Fort Museum ( those who wish to visit the museum may do so on their own – it opens at 10am). Walk is free. Register at themadrasday@gmail.com
