Powerful Paths: A traveller's guide to Britain's industrial infrastructure

Welcome to Powerful Paths, the start of a project encompassing all the stuff that goes on in the background, from pylons and power lines to sewage and servers. We'll be out there looking at the structure of infrastructure and devising ways to get up close to it all.

A linked series of walks, rides and trails, available initially on website and blog, shortly after as an ebook (and you never know, maybe even on actual paper in the fullness of time) will allow us to look more closely at what makes Britain tick. We'll take in wonderful engineering feats and obscure but crucial tunnels, the strange variety of telecommunications towers and the er, power, of power stations. No trespassing involved, just walking, riding and looking at the powerful pathways through our countryside. And that means urban and rural, in the long literary and visual tradition of gritty exploration of Britain's industrial fringes.
