633: Laurence Mitchell: Westering

Beginning in Great Yarmouth and meandering to Aberystwyth, this book is a coast-to-coast journey traversing the Fens, East Midlands, Birmingham, the Black Country and central Wales. It connects landscape, place and memory to evoke a narrative unravelling the deep topography. Exploring a westerly route that runs against the grain of the land, Laurence Mitchell also reveals its geology, culture and historical bedrock.

“All of the best walks begin or end at sea – mine would do both.”
