Nick Papadimitriou has spent a lifetime tramping the outer reaches of the city, obsessively logging everything and everyone he sees on long solo walks around the county of Middlesex. His new book ‘Scarp’ is an extraordinary account of a man turning his back on London and becoming the landscape, written in part as a memoir and in part by his semi-fictionalised inhabitants of the area: it is a truly unique vision of London. Euan Ferguson joined him on a ten-mile walk from West Ruislip to discover the reasons for Nick’s compulsive walking and writing.

Read the full interview with Nick or watch ‘The London Perambulator’ documentary. See more pics from the walk below…
