The man and his mule who walked across England

Hugh Thomson is a British travel writer and explorer who has been on many expeditions to Peru in search of ancient Inca ruins. For his latest adventure, though, he chose to stay much closer to home. He set off with a mule called Jethro to walk across the north of England - from the Lake District to the Yorkshire moors, using old drovers' roads and mule tracks that have fallen into disrepair. He told Anu Anand where mules come from.
