Intrepid historian and travel writer, Tom Fort, willingly gets on his trusty bicycle and covers the length and breadth of England to discover the essence of village life.
His journeys will travel over six thousand years of communal existence for the peoples that eventually became the English. Littered between the historical analysis, will be personal memories from Tom of the village life he remembers and enjoys today in rural Oxfordshire.
“An eye for oddity and eccentricity an a gentle wit take Fort a long way”
Tom Fort read English at Balliol College, Oxford before going on to work as a reporter on a newspaper and then on to the BBC where he worked for over 20 years. He is married with five children and is the author several books including ‘Channel Shore’ and ‘The A303: Highway to the Sun’
