Low Country: Brexit on the Essex Coast: Tom Bolton
Fri 29 March
Celebrated walker and essayist Tom Bolton walks the boggy, winding coastline of Essex, encountering stunning landscapes, wind-battered towns and front-garden Union Jacks. Spanning both landscape and political writing, Low Country interrogates the natural and social environments of Essex, asking why its particular politics is so pronounced, and what we can learn from the countys role in shaping the nation.
Tom Bolton is a writer and researcher. He writes books and essays about cities, places, landscape and culture. He is the author of Vanished City: London’s Lost Neighbourhoods, London’s Lost Rivers: A Walker’s Guide and Camden Town: Dreams of Another London. Based on these books Tom has given talks delving into hidden histories and cultures to cover topics as diverse as opium and Limehouse Chinatown, social housing and Somers town, White City and the 1908 Olympics.
