More intimate than a city, towns are where we first learned to be urban. Harbour towns, market towns, island towns, industrial towns: collectively they bind our land together.

The most westerly town in the UK, Enniskillen is surrounded by beautiful lakes, is busy with independent shops, and attracts forward-thinking entrepreneurs. But its serene way of life is under threat - from plans for underground gas exploitation.

Geographer and adventurer Nicholas Crane journeys through the past, present, and potential future of this island town on the edge of Northern Ireland.
