Windsor Great Park with Bill Bryson

Clare Balding heads out across Windsor Great Park with writer and journalist Bill Bryson, who explains his passion for the British countryside and his love of walking.

Clare Balding heads out across Windsor Great Park in the company of writer and prolific walker, Bill Bryson. He explains how he developed a passion for exploring both Britain and parts of America on foot. They discuss how ones notion of distance changes dramatically when you walk.

'A mile becomes a long way, two miles literally considerable, ten miles whopping, fifty miles at the very limits of conception. The world, you realize, is enormous in a way that only you and a small community of fellow hikers know. Planetary scale is your little secret.'

Bill takes Clare on one of his very favourite walks around Windsor Park, a place he has enjoyed walking with his family.
