In this debatable land what is it in us
that builds a doorless house
with twelve feet of bricks
and a ladder pulled up behind?


Outlandish is a collaborative work of poetry and drawing by the writers Jo Clement and Damian Le Bas and the artist W. John Hewitt.


Taking St Cuthbert’s Way – a modern walking trail based on anancient pilgrims’ path – as its starting point, it is a vision of North East England and South East Scotland through shifting gazes.


Here are pilgrims, Romanies, grandparents, herons, Transits, castles, mudflats, B-roads, clay pipes, periwinkles, silk and fire.
