In this travel book the author looks at the work and follows the routes around Britain taken by some of the better-known travellers of the past, using the same means of transport as they did wherever possible. Burton tours the Western Islands as Dr Johnson did, travels across the Pennines with Daniel Defoe and round Cornwall with Wilkie Collins. He follows the route of John Taylor from Oxford to London on the Thames, discovers South-East England with William Cobbett, the country around Exeter with Celia Fiennes and tours the distilleries of Scotland with Alfred Barnard. Burton is an author, lecturer and broadcaster. His books include "Back Door Britain", "Navigators", "The Past Afloat", "Waterways of Britain" and "Walking the Line".show more
