Interesting article in The Quietus which touches on your topic, but takes it in a slightly different direction....

Plus a few recommendations for further reading.


When I read the Quietus article Will Self came immediately to mind and his perambulation through London to the countryside. This video captures looking at the 'edgelands' very well as long as you ignore Brand.

But of course all this landscape writing is escapism from the full horror of what is happening in our world, which is slowly dying. We should not forget that all these megaliths on TMA represent another dead world; every time we go through the Yorkshire Moors I think bloody Bronze Age people destroying the forests as they did..
