Alison is there author of ‘A little Book about Paths for the preambulator‘ Paths are a form of separation between us and modern life. They separate us from traffic. They flow like water to provide us with natural shortcuts and desire lines. They can allow for a continuity of gardens and be good wildlife corridors. They can provide a link to the past and the people who used old routes, providing a touchstone for emotional memory. When we follow in footsteps, we are in harmony with our ancestors.
