Philip Marsden will be interviewed by Colin Midson from Granta Books. He will be discussing his newly published book ‘Rising Ground: A Search for the Spirit of Place.’

Why do we react so strongly to certain places? Why do layers of mythology build up around particular features in the landscape? When Philip Marsden moved to a remote creekside farmhouse in Cornwall, the intensity of his response took him aback. It led him to begin exploring these questions, prompting a journey westwards to Land’s End through one of the most fascinating regions of Europe.  Rising-Ground-222x360
