Fringed with Mud and Pearls

An English Island Odyssey

Ian Crofton

Ian Crofton’s voyages of discovery to some of the islands that make up England’s ‘fringe of mud and pearls’ starts with Canvey Island in the Thames Estuary and finishes ‘in search of lost time’ on the Isle of Wight. Crofton explores the past and present of his 14 chosen islands as well as describing his own journeys around landscapes and social scenes as varied as the commercial centre on London’s Isle of Dogs and religious retreats on Lindisfarne.
