“Images of Rural Britain” by Christopher Somerville

The charm and  accessibility of Britain's wonderfully varied countryside and culture have long drawn visitors from around the world (as well as from Britain itself), with each region and each season offering something new. Outside the cities lie magnificent scenery and an extraordinary heritage. This stunning portrait  captures the rich appeal of a familiar yet ever surprising land. Evocative photographs and detailed descriptions reveal Britain's myriad treasures: from the woodland villages of rural Surrey and the historic resonance of 'Shakespeare Country', to the hidden valleys of Wales and the rugged grandeur of the Scottish Highlands. Britain's built and natural legacy is shown in all its glory in this  magnificently illustrated and beautifully written visual celebration.
