The January Man

  • This event has passed.

Christopher Somerville

Friday 13th October 15:30 - 16:30 | Northwood House

Times Walking Correspondent and author, Christopher Somerville, describes a year of walks throughout the British Isles, following routes that remind him of his father with whom he shared a love of long distance walking. As he travels the country – from the winter floodlands of the River Severn to the springtime lambing pastures of Nidderdale, from the towering seabird cliffs on the Shetland Isle of Foula in June to the ancient oaks of Sherwood Forest in autumn – he describes the history, wildlife, changing landscapes and people he passes, down back lanes and old paths, in rain and fair weather. The January Man is a powerful, lyrical year-round evocation of the countryside of the British Isles and a testament to the power of walking in forging connections between people. Christopher will be talking to James Vaux, presenter at Vectis Radio.
