Paul and Mark come from the central south of England, a rural area where people have lived for thousands of years. The evidence is still there, from the prehistoric figure of the White Horse on the hillside above the village of Uffington to Britain's oldest droving road, the Ridgeway, running along the hilltops. This album is inspired by that.
