M25 Summary


M25: A Circular Tour of the London Orbital by Ray Hamilton

Have you ever wanted to know...

  • Which junction to take for Gibraltar?
  • How to save GBP35,040 a year on Dartford Crossing tolls?
  • How many assassins were buried within the concrete of the M25? (at least one)
  • Why it's important that North Ockendon declares itself independent from Greater London at the earliest opportunity?

This indispensable biography of a road profiles the 117 miles of Britain's most infamous motorway, from its controversial origins to its present-day status as backdrop to the lives and commutes of millions. Told with Ray Hamilton's trademark powers of observation and off-the-wall humour, it is an eye-opening account of the stuff you didn't know about the M25 - including the action, sightseeing or nature-loving fun you can have coming off at any junction - and a very different view of the stuff you did know.
