Walking away, further travels with a troubadour on the South West Coast Path
Publication year: 2015
Media class: Hardback
Publisher: Faber & Faber
Not content with walking the Pennine Way as a modern day troubadour, an experience recounted in his bestseller and prize-wining 'Walking Home', Simon Armitage has followed up that journey with a walk of the same distance but through the very opposite terrain and direction far from home. In 'Walking Away', he swaps the moorland uplands of the north for the coastal fringes of Britain's south west, once again giving readings every night, but this time through Somerset, Devon and Cornwall, taking poetry into distant communities and tourist hot-spots, busking his way from start to finish.
Another excellent literary long distance walk in similar vein to its predecessor on the Pennine Way.Humorous look at the West Country with its great characters.Will he complete the Path to Poole I wonder?
