This is a land of industrial estates, factories and electricity pylons, of motorways and ring roads, of hospitals and housing estates, of roundabouts and flyovers. Places where modern life speeds past but where people and stories nevertheless collect. Places where human dramas play out: stories of love, violence, fear, boredom and artistic expression. Places of ghost sightings, first kisses, experiments with drugs, refuges for the homeless, hangouts for the outcasts.

Struck by the power of these stories and experiences, Gareth E. Rees set out to explore these spaces and the essential part they have played in the history and geography of our isles. Though mundane and neglected, they can be as powerfully influential in our lives, and imaginations, as any picture postcard tourist destination. This is Unofficial Britain, a personal journey along the edges of a landscape brimming with mystery, folklore and myth.

Gareth E. Rees is founder of the popular Unofficial Britain website and author of three books: Marshland, The Stone Tide and Car Park Life, published to rave reviews in 2019. Modern myths and folklore of place have always driven his writing, which includes horror and weird fiction tales for anthologies, including The Best of British Fantasy 2019. He is also vocalist for garage rock band The Dirty Contacts.
