Holloway - a hollow way, a sunken path. A route that centuries of foot-fall, hoof-hit, wheel-roll and rain-run have harrowed deep down into bedrock. In July 2005, Robert Macfarlane and Roger Deakin - author of Wildwood - travelled to explore the holloways of South Dorset's sandstone. They found their way into a landscape of shadows, spectres & great strangeness. Six years later, after Roger Deakin's early death, Robert Macfarlane returned to the holloway with the artist Stanley Donwood and writer Dan Richards. The book is about those journeys and that landscape. Moving in the spaces between social history, psychogeography and travel writing, Holloway is a beautiful and haunted work of art.

“Short & Sweet”

This was written in memorial to the great nature writer Roger Deakin, sadly taken from us all at the peak of his writing powers.

“The droves of Dorset...”

A very short read and probably best suited to those with a fey disposition. Not the "roadmap" of Dorset byways that I had expected.

“A Strange and Beautiful Journey”

For me, there is a lot to love in this tiny book. It sits somewhere between poetry, fable and travel, which makes it a nightmare to shelve if you're a book seller, but an absolute delight if you're a reader.... More
