Beyond the suburbs and stereotypes, Essex is a county of haunting beauty that has fuelled the imagination of writers for centuries. In this fusion of nature writing and literary detection, James Canton scours its fields and saltmarshes for the scenes that inspired Defoe, Coleridge, Conrad and Wells, follows in the footsteps of John Clare through Epping Forest, and scours the Chelmer Valley for traces of JA Baker, the enigmatic author of The Peregrine.
