'Gonna take a Sentimental Journey, Gonna set my heart at ease'

'Gonna take a Sentimental Journey, Gonna set my heart at ease': psychogeography as autobiogeographical cardiac rehabilitation.
Speaker: Roy Bayfield
Abstract: Roy will talk about his 'Walking Home to 50' psychogeographical journey. This episodic walk from Southport Pier to Brighton Pier is being documented in blog form. One post (involving the non-existent Googletown of Argleton and a toy tapir) led to international media coverage and appearances on local TV and national radio. Defined as 'autobiogeography' the journey recently took an internal bypass-style detour involving heart surgery but is now back on track - Roy has brushed past the metropolis and reached Guildford, aka Astolat in Arthurian myth. Roy's job involves marketing for Edge Hill University - he is presenting to the Leeds student recruitment team
earlier in the day and is desperately trying to think of ways to link the two talks together.
