Join Melissa as she cycles to an abandoned World War II airbase and explores the old runways. A sharp breeze is plucking acorns from the trees, and skylarks are feeding in the brown stubble fields. Ginny Battson joins us from Westhope Wood in North Herefordshire; she wrote about rivers for The Wildlife Trusts’ Spring and Autumn anthologies. ‘Into The Hour’ is by Elizabeth Jennings, whose New Selected Poems is published by Carcanet.
