Michael Weltike tries to persuade Clare Balding of the benefits of barefoot walking on a wintry wander in the West Country.
They meet at the church of St Andrew in Compton Bishop, near Weston-super-Mare, and walk from there to Crook Peak. Accompanied by Michael's permanently barefoot companion, Woody, Clare and Michael strip off from the ankles down and revel in the unusual pleasure of walking barefoot.
Michael is certain that by 'earthing' himself regularly he maintains a high level of health and well-being.
