A listen back to a chat with poet, broadcaster and essayist Simon Armitage – on the simple pleasures of walking. Having previously walked much of the length of the UK, when he visited Midori House he’d just finished covering some of its lesser-known coastal routes, too. He joined us to explain why walking and writing go hand in hand. Original air date: 24 May 2015.
