Summary
Britain's Lost Routes sees Griff Rhys Jones follow four routes; each one associated with the historic movement of people, trade or commodities. Along the way he provides his own perspective on contemporary British life. He will reveal why we once traveled for pleasure, profit and piety. By walking a Welsh pilgrim’s route, transporting hay around the Essex coast, recreating a Tudor Royal Progression and driving cattle across Scotland he will explore the landscapes and meet the people who inhabit them today, using the here and now as a portal to the past.From the luxury of a Rolls Royce to the more basic surroundings of a barge, from transporting a bus–load of contemporary pilgrims to the perils of moving a cow, Griff gets to grips with exactly how our ancestors journeyed from place to place — and how they amused themselves en–route.With his unending curiosity and inherent wit, Griff investigates the stories of those who traveled these now forgotten paths and considers the cultural as well as environmental impact they have had on the history of Britain
