John 'Walking' Stewart

I like the sound of this fellow. Fancy being known (slightly) to posterity by the epithet 'Walking'...


  1. I knew a bloke with an almost identical epithet. He went blind eventually.

    Lots of people walked all the time in the 18th century, though not many put it altogether in a straight-ish line and wrote about it. Yes, it saves waiting for the invention of the bus, I suppose (and then two inventions come along at once).

  2. Yes there's definitely a book in English pedestrianism. Unfortunately I think it's already been written...

  3. 'Minds me of John "Walking" Clare.
