Hampstead Heath is unique - a swath of countryside in the midst of a great city. Yet it could easily have been lost as London expanded inexorably, swallowing fields and villages in its way. Illustrated with historical prints, drawings and maps, this absorbing history charts the fortunes of the Heath and its component parts from the Middle Ages to the present, and explains how a determined band of Victorian campaigners saved it from development.
