This is England

Inspired by J B Priestley's book of the same name, John Angerson's photo series English Journey takes the viewer on a contemporary tour of our not-so-great nation. Brexiteers may have us believe that England is still an idyllic 1950s picture postcard of warm beer, vintage cars and cricket on village greens - but the truth is that it's much more one of grubby plastic garden furniture, horses grazing on industrial estate scrubland and neon McDonald's signs glimpsed through drizzle-patterned Travelodge windows.
