9781847086716   Product Code: 22063
Not so long ago, our roads and cities were built of local stone, our industries were powered by coal from Welsh mines, and our lamps were lit by paraffin from Scottish shale. Now the pits and quarries lie empty and abandoned. In this evocative book, Tim Nield journeys through Britain's buried landscape, from the Welsh village of his mining ancestors to Swansea, Aberdeen, Surrey and Dorset, to explore the history and geology of the forgotten land beneath our feet.
