Adventures in Poetry - Series 10 - Adlestrop


Peggy Reynolds explores the background, effect and lasting appeal of some well-loved poems. Written in 1915 about a two-minute stop at a railway station in the Cotswolds, this poem has long been loved for its evocation of high summer, rural England and the intimation of changes to come.
