This video was shot on a walk for the episode on SPB Mais’s It Isn’t Far From London published in 1931, it it cut together with some audio excerpts from the radio show, where we diligently followed a walk through Stoke Poges, Burnham Beaches and Hedgerley described in the book.
In Mais’s day you could access Stoke Poges quite easily by pubic transport even on a Sunday, those days have sadly passed so we had to start our journey on foot in Slough and then tramp on through the dark winter evening in the acoustic footprint beside the M40 into Beaconsfiled.
