Borderland - Walking the East Kent Coastline

"Rod Edmond brings an expert scholarly eye and poetic insight to a complex and fascinating project, drawing history, literature and contemporary social realities into his account."

Winner of the nobel prize for literature, 2021

"A thrilling and urgently necessary read at a time of social division and agonised questions about Britain’s land and soul; questions about who belongs in Britain, and which world community Britain itself belongs to."

Reculver Tower
Reculver Towers is where I start my walk from. Site of a Roman fort, later an Anglo-Saxon monastery, the Towers themselves were built in the 12th century. I think of them as marking the different historical periods of this seabord.
