Crane, Nicholas, Two Degrees West: An English Journey [1999] (London: Penguin, 2000).

In search of the people's England, Nicholas Crane, bestselling author of Clear Waters Rising, walked the length of the country along the line of longitude known as the Central Meridian. In a highly original cross-section that links landscapes as diverse as the wild Northumberland moors, the industrial Black Country and picture-book Wessex, the author meets everyone from shepherds to shift-workers and the owner of a Dorset island. They share their passions and eccentricities in this classic quest for the common well of Englishness.
