The Essay, Winterwalks Episode 2 of 5
Listen in pop-out player

Christopher Hope moves briskly to avoid the cold wins of the Languedoc. But he still has time to delight in the details of the land and tell us about the Cayman..

The wonders of winter are best observed on foot. So five writers were asked to go walking whilst the landscape was 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.
