“We walk.
Though we are written into the landscape you don’t see us.
We walked England before the English.”

Thomas, Matthew and Richard walk. They walk the fi rst Saturday of every month. Walking and talking. But this walk… Maybe they should have cancelled, but they needed the walk today. Out in the Peaks, they find themselves forced to walk backwards through two thousand years before they can move forwards.

This story is part of Revolution Mix – a movement that is delivering the largest ever number of new Black British Stories nationally. It is inspired by and dedicated to the Black Men’s Walking Group, and is a compelling, constantly surprising new show that turns a spotlight onto Britain’s missing histories.
