TWO great-great-grandsons of Charles Dickens have set off on a walk following in the footsteps of two of the author's characters.
Ian Charles Dickens and brother Gerald are walking from London to Portsmouth, like Nicholas and Smike did in The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby.
Gerald Dickens, an actor, performed readings from a number of Dickens' works along the route.
At the end of a long day on the road, he donned his stage outfit and delivered a free performances from his repertoire of one man Dickens shows
One free evening performance was held at the Inn on the Lake in Godalming.
