The ramble onwards, heading south and west on byways and ancient tracks, aiming to reach the four extremities of England, and to see interesting things on the way.

In 27 miles he meets clerical dancers and jolly huntsmen; disobedient dogs and segreant griffins; bold bishop, lieutenants, and fishermen; apples bitter, sweet, bittersweet and sharp; vanished ales, lost canals, and axed railways; Alfred's proverbs and Aldhem's riddles; Will's Neck and Gadd's Bottom in a reticulation of rebellion, restoration, recreation and reform.

Not really a guide book, much more a slow travel diary, this book is intended for the armchair traveller, but may also inspire the active walker.
