Weymouth Timewalk

Costumes, from Weymouth Museum archive

Liam FindlayI first met Liam Findlay in 2017 when he was designing sets for The Escape Dungeons underneath The Richmoor Hotel on the Esplanade in Weymouth.

Since then he's been travelling far and wide lending his very particular set of skills and artistry to a number of interesting projects but it's Weymouth's Time Walk that Liam wanted to speak with me about and I was very pleased to meet up with him again.

Having closed 10 years ago and with next to no written history of it's existence, Liam felt it was important to do something to preserve the memory of what was one of Weymouth's popular attractions and certainly a curiosity.

We met outside the building where the Timewalk was built, in Brewers Quay.

Liam has set about a series of articles that trace the Timewalk from the very beginning until the very end revealing some intriguing secrets along the way.

He begins his first article: In May 2018, I was led by torchlight into the gloomy remains of plague-ridden streets, a shipwreck and a long-abandoned ballroom.

With an opening line like that, you know you're going to learn something of interest. We'll update this post with Liam's links as the new articles become available.

For now Part 1 can be found HERE and Part 2, HERE.
