Christopher Somerville's Travels
Christopher Somerville has spent 25 years writing and broadcasting about country walks (and tougher hikes), life in remote rural and island communities from Scotland to Crete by way of the Faroes, music-making in Irish pubs, festivals from Spain to Sweden, and the pleasure and delight of telling stories and weaving yarns.
Christopher Somerville writes extensively on Essex, Canvey Island and Dr Feelgood in his latest book, Somerville's Travels (AA Publishing).
The book tells the story of 20 journeys- mostly on foot, but also by bicycle, branch line train, bus, narrowboat and ferry - across very special areas of Britain. Here are remarkable landscapes, travelled by the unfrequented ways that reveal their unique characters.
