This Hidden Valley – from the Sussex Downs to the mountains of Iran..

What’s the connection between the green hills of the South Downs and the mountains of north west Iran?

Answer: me, as I take you on my first published journey here on Substack. This prose poem This Hidden Valley is a remix of a walking essay originally commissioned  for ‘Into the Wild’, part of The Essay series on BBC Radio 3.

Part 2 of this journey to follow soon… together with a read-aloud version. Free to subscribe, one story/poem/article every 7-10 days plus audio/writing prompts for paid subscribers who want to support my work on that level.
