Interesting things we've found about walking

Haworth Hodgkinson

I went away thinking about walking in poetry and music, and came to the conclusion that I have never written much about walking as it is so fundamental to the creative process. I do however have one poem, "Deveronsiding", that is a specific recreation of a walk alongside the River Deveron in Huntly
