@LWalksLondon. Writer, speaker and tour guide with a particular interest in scientific discovery, invention, engineering and medicine. These eclectic guided walks include stories behind some blue heritage plaques, but mostly those hidden historic sites associated with an extraordinary array of forgotten heroes and strange escapades.

Intended to encourage people with an interest in science, engineering and medicine to appreciate the history of these subjects, and to bring to people with an interest in art and history an appreciation of science, engineering and medicine.

Laurence Scales, whose walks these are, is a volunteer worker at the Royal Institution and also a guide for the London Canal Museum's summer Tunnel Tours and Towpath Walks.
