Imagine a world where the A1 in Northern England is now the east coast of England, and coastal storms send unprecedented amounts of water inland. The equinox brings high tides, and the full moon is adding power to the swell. Even Marsden could soon be under water and people are heading for the hills.

Lyrical, engaging and ultimately reinforcing the importance of ecologies, this walk will transform every landlubber to hypothetical seafarer.
