Raynor Winn and Christian Lewis talk to Dan Richards


Hay Festival 2023, 

For both Christian Lewis (Finding Hildasay) and Raynor Winn (The Salt Path, Landlines), the coastline is a place of healing, challenge, uncertainty and beauty. Lewis embarked on a mission to walk the entire coastline of the UK after suffering with severe depression; among his journeys he spent three months on an uninhabited island called Hildasay, where there was no fresh water or food. Winn and her husband Moth went on a 1,000 mile journey from the north-west corner of Scotland to the south coast of Cornwall, even as they both knew that Moth’s health was suddenly declining. The pair share their inspirational and hopeful stories.
