North Downs Landscapes
Exploring the Glorious English Countryside on London's Doorstep
Stretching approximately 100 miles from Dover through rolling Kentish farmland and along the southern fringe of London to Farnham in Surrey, the North Downs offer some of the most unspoilt countryside and spectacular views within easy reach of the capital. Illustrated with full-page colour photographs, this book follows the course of the Downs, explores their history, geography, geology, ecology and wildlife, and charts the campaigns to protect them from encroaching development.
Broads, Brecks, Staithes and Churches
Closer to the Netherlands than to London, Norfolk is England’s most easterly county, bounded on two sides by the North Sea and the Wash. For many, its abiding image is of flat expanses beneath huge skies. This photographic exploration reveals the rich variety of Norfolk’s landscape: its lanes and byways, the medieval splendour of Norwich Cathedral, the round-towered churches, the fens and saltmarshes, and the fragile habitat of the Brecklands.
