From ancient woodland to modern skyscrapers, motorway underpasses to stately homes, most parts of the city are subject to the scrutiny of the writers. The end result is a book that can be read with pleasure at home, as a collection of writing about London, and above all used as a thought-provoking guide to a series of walks through the capital.
