The Man who Drowned the Meadows

Rowland Vaughan, 1558–1627

The Golden Valley Study Group

In 1610 Rowland Vaughan published his Most Approved and Long Experienced Water Workes describing his system for controlled flooding or ‘drowning’ to increase the fertility of meadows on his estate in the Golden Valley, Herefordshire. Combining both historical research and field surveys, this book gives an illustrated account of Vaughan’s innovative project, with chapters on Vaughan himself and photographs of the remaining evidence of his work in the landscape.
