Welcome to the Edge of England

Escape in your head by bringing your ears on a gentle, uplifting wander along the coast with us in this new episode of a series that has been highly praised by the likes of Country Living and Radio 4’s Podcast Hour: “I love it. Edge of England always has a Detectorists feel … you get a lovely English countryside sense of having a hug.”

NEW EPISODE! SEASON THREE BEGINS HERE:

THE SAVING POWER OF NATURE

MURDER ON SEA

THE BEACHY HEAD EXPERIENCE

A GLASS OF SUSSEX

Thanks for coming to the home of our podcast, telling fascinating tales about people and places down here on the southern edge of England. We’ll be exploring the dramatic coastline around Beachy Head, Birling Gap, the Seven Sisters and beyond. We’ll be talking about what it’s like to live on the edge geographically, but in all sorts of other ways too. Anything can happen here.

THE HIGHLIGHTS EPISODE

If you came because of the piece in the Guardian, you may like to start with the story of Misgana from series one. If it’s because of the lovely mention on BBC Radio 4 Extra’s Podcast Radio Hour you might want the one called Detectorists With Wings. That’s a good one for readers of Country Living to start with too. But of course you’re also very welcome to start anywhere you like, thank you for lending us your ears and taking us into the Top Ten in the UK Travel & Places podcast chart. Enjoy!

Sign up below to follow this blog and we’ll let you know when the next episode is ready. Here’s Emily trying to stop the sea coming in … no, sorry, recording the sounds of the sea (and Mabel).
