Exploring cultures and communities – the slow way

A look ahead at issue no. 17.

article summary —

Just on the border of Germany and Belgium, there is an overlooked area of desolate moorland called the Hautes Fagnes (or Hohes Venn in German). Language and nationality don't always neatly match in this region. The Belgian town of Eupen, for example, is mainly German-speaking. We shall report on this area in our next issue.

Consider your favourite road! It might run along a particularly beautiful stretch of coastline or traverse a great mountain range. One of our favourites is no great highway, but merely an old drovers' route that crosses an especially beautiful piece of moorland. This single track road that runs east from Tregaron in mid-Wales takes some beating. Join us in hidden europe 17 as we reflect on the road to Abergwesyn. Publication date is Monday 5 November.
