FROM WATFORD GAP TO CAMELOT

mythical journey along a real but relatively ordinary road. Or maybe it is a real journey along a mythical road - I'm never quite sure.

It is a quest of sorts, ranging across history, mystery, the bizarre and the banal, starting in the middle of nowhere, and ending somewhere that probably doesn't exist. In between - the ordinary and the extraordinary, which often turn out to be the same thing.

To follow the course of the road and its stories, follow the finger Foreword. I'll understand if you can't accompany me on the whole journey - not all at once, at least. But you can bookmark the page you leave from, and return later. It is a virtual journey, after all. If the total on-line time involved is too much for you, go to the Cheat the Phone Company page. (But, bear in mind that the "quest" isn't finished - I do add new material from time to time.)

There are three main sections:-
From Scratchwood to Wychwood, Wessex and Towards Twilight.
The Palimpsest section deals with general historical issues, some of them arising arising from the "journey". There's a gallery of image Thumbnails and some Context maps, to help locate the road, the country, the planet.

This road has also inspired a sequence of songs - the Camelot Sequence. Have a listen.
