‘The Book of Trespass’ by Nick Hayes
This was another recommendation. This time from folk singer Beans on Toast. ‘The Book of Trespass’ seeks to expose and challenge the power that landownership exerts on this country.
The vast majority of our country is entirely unknown to us because we are banned from setting foot on it. By law of trespass, we are excluded from 92 per cent of the land and 97 per cent of its waterways, blocked by walls whose legitimacy is rarely questioned.
A really good book – definitely worth a read. Let’s trespass!
