15 Ealing – Matthew Beaumont / by Rick Pearson

In a first for London's Peaks, this walk takes place after dark. Why? Because this episode's guest is none other than Matthew Beaumont, author of Nightwalking: A Nocturnal History of London. En route to the peak on Horsenden Hill, Matthew discusses Dickens, deep topography and the night's ability to re-enchant places. He also politely points out to co-host George Bull that they may be going the wrong way, seeing as they are headed downhill rather than up.
