Available in Stock
The underlying chalk geology is responsible for many of the special characteristics of the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Rich in prehistoric monuments, including the Uffington White Horse and the stone circle at Avebury, the area is also blessed with majestic landscapes and monuments of a more recent vintage such as Highclere Castle. This book explores the geography, history and wildlife of the area, and includes visitor information and photographs of many of the most important sites.
