Travis Elborough’s new book is a fascinating, revelatory insight into the history of our parks. From their medieval life as private royal hunting grounds to their modern incarnation as public spaces teeming with activity, theirs is a story of land-grabbing monarchs and Restoration fops, great Victorian industrialist, and punks. Celebrating a small wonder that we often take for granted, it will have your next trip to the park brimming with history, anecdotes and new meaning.

Travis Elborough is an author and cultural commentator. His books include ‘The Bus We Loved’; ‘The Long Player Goodbye’ and ‘Wish You Were Here’.

‘In the latest programme, Mishal Husain introduces dispatches from journalists and writers around the United Kingdom that reflect the range of contemporary life in the country. This month: Ian McMillan unveils his campaign for Yorkshire pudding to secure UNESCO intangible heritage status; Carly Appleby reveals the dramatic effect of an unexpected medical diagnosis; Travis Elborough meets the 87 year-old behind an improbable retail success story in Brighton; Rebecca Ford discovers how Blackpool has reinvented itself – with a little help from China; and Mihir Bose ponders what allotments have to teach the people in charge of our leading football clubs.’
