The Forgiving Path

Since forever we have walked paths into existence. Now we choose to follow them at our leisure. Re-awaken to the possibilities that await us all just beyond our front door. Be touched by three people who remind us how just a thimbleful of nature can fill our souls. And consider how crossing paths could bring a new best friend. Then reach for your coat and take a breath…

The Forgiving Path is a series of short vignettes giving an intimate insight into three personal stories and connection with the surrounding landscape. Inspired by Slow Ways, a grassroots initiative to create a network of walking routes that connect all of Great Britain’s towns and cities.
