The Essay - Winterwalks - 4. Erica Wagner

Series featuring winter journeys on foot. Literary editor of The Times Erica Wagner recalls a journey that happens at midnight, with a hill, a castle and biting winds.

|Author and critic Erica Wagner recalls a journey that happens at midnight, taking in a hill, a castle and biting winds. But it's really about couples walking together. How do they respond?

The wonders of winter are best observed on foot. So five writers were asked to go walking whilst the landscape is still tranformed by the cold. Deborah Levy, Christopher Hope, Scarlett Thomas, Erica Wagner and Owen Sheers all headed out to different places, and then reported back about their journeys and the actual activity of walking. What did it mean to them?

Producer Duncan Minshull.
