During the months of September and October 2007 John Davies took a walk across the north of England following the route of the M62 motorway east to west from Hull to his home back in Liverpool.
This is an edited version of the daily entries John posted on his walk website, with additional passages and a new 7-page introduction. Also including 12 b&w pictures from the walk, John's 'Twitter' archive and a useful reference list, this is an entertaining and thought-provoking record of a remarkable journey.
