Edge Walking No.11: Imber, Salisbury Plain


This is the latest in my series about walking the Essex coast, published on Caught by the River. Here are the preceding instalments: OneTwoThreeFour,  FiveSixSeven, Eight, Nine and Ten. Jo and I have been walking, slowly, around the coast of Britain for several years. Since Spring 2016 we have been walking the winding Essex coast wall. This installment deters to Salisbury Plain, on a bus tour around the off-limits military village of Imber, with an extra visit to a nuclear bunker.

More episodes to come, published on Caught by the River.
