Nigel Richardson, Richard Wilson

Write Review

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Travel writing

A tie-in to a BBC TV series celebrating the Golden Age of Motoring, in which One Foot in the Grave star Richard Wilson follows some of Britain's best drives from the Wye Valley to Rob Roy's Highlands

Back in the fifties, motoring was a liberating experience. Before motorways, traffic jams and road rage, the leisurely Sunday drive could be the highlight of the week. Now, armed with period driving guides, Richard Wilson has packed his picnic, flask and himself into some very stylish vintage cars to retrace six classic routes through the UK and recreate the pleasure of the golden age of motoring for BBC TV.


Including the dramatic winding roads of the North Cornwall coast, the lochs and peaks of the Central Highlands and the bronze-age monoliths of the North Yorkshire moors, Richard explores some of the most striking and beautiful scenery and landmarks Britain has to offer. Along the way he meets the people who live there and remember how these places once were, and wonders why things aren't what they used to be.
