A walking tour which covers the history of the city centre through the ever-changing relationship between green space and the built environment. The tour shows how people - both past and present - have claimed pockets of space to make small gardens, whether in gap sites, or in historic public places. As well as highlighting inspirational examples from both past and present, the tour also considers some of the obstacles to claiming urban breathing space.
