A bender is the British travellers' abode of choice. Built from little more than a tarpaulin and some thin hazel poles, people live in these snug, warm eco-homes the length and breadth of Britain. Like many sensible things, bender-life remains broadly illegal. In this Wooden Book, designed to last you until the oil runs out, a long-time bender-dweller finally reveals the fine art of the perfect British bender.
