Poet Owen Sheers makes the week's final walk, heading deep into a forest in Poland, where the sights and sounds are alluring and timeless. Then he passes the woman on the bicycle..

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