In this great composite portrait of the countryside, Clive Aslet has chosen 500 villages, each of which 'puts a single aspect of rural Britain under the spotlight'. Arranging his villages alphabetically within Scotland, Wales and seven English regions, he tells the stories of their origins, their development and the people who lived in them; and having visited every place he describes, Aslet brings a personal perspective to this erudite and entertaining survey.
