Location And The Writer, part 2

Location

In Location and the Writer, we visit the small town of Olney and the tiny village of Great Tew. Mary Colson takes us to Olney in north Buckinghamshare, her childhood home and the site of an historic friendship between a poet and a slave trader. Simon Rae takes us to Great Tew in north Oxfordshire, an estate village that began with lofty aspirations but descended to decrepitude.
