Description

'Should be at every curious Englishman's bedside' ALAN TITCHMARSH 'As vital as it is joyous, and as timely as it is inspired . . . It should join Shakespeare and the Bible as a "must have" on any English man or woman's desert island' HUGH FEARNLEY-WHITTINGSTALL From allotments to arcades, fingerposts to footbridges, stepping stones to stiles this is the perfect pocket-sized companion for countryside or coast. Drawn from the critically acclaimed England In Particular, this delightful book pairs with Journeys Through England in Particular: On Foot to form a new series celebrating English local distinctiveness - ideal for travellers, holiday-makers and armchair browsers. England In Particular, first published in 2006, is a celebration of the distinctive details that cumulatively make England - its buildings, landscapes, people and wildlife. It was the culmination of more than twenty years' work by Sue Clifford and Angela King, who founded the charity Common Ground with Roger Deakin.
