The journey through England begins, starting in a wet and weary Berwick-Upon-Tweed, a town whose nationality is still uncertain and unimportant.
In Darlington, Tom encounters a busker whose performance cannot be explained purely by earthly powers, and in Erpingham, (Norfolk) he finds a society whose unwritten and unspoken constitution can only be described as anarchy in its truest form.
You will hear a Pacer train arriving and departing Redcar central station, the iconic sound of the now condemned British Leyland bus on rails drawing away with the evening commuter train to Saltburn.
