In the final 'slow-radio' walk in the footsteps of Bach on his journey to meet Buxtehude, writer Horatio Clare travels the Old Salt Road to Molln, and enters the city of Lubeck.

In 1705 the 20-year-old Johann Sebastian Bach set off from his home in Arnstadt to walk 250 miles to Lübeck, there to meet his hero, the composer and organist Dietrich Buxtehude. In the fifth and last of five 'slow-radio' walks in which writer Horatio Clare searches for his footsteps - and his ghost - the route takes him from the village of Roseburg along the Old Salt Road to Mölln, and on the city of Lübeck.
