A Portrait of EnglandBook - 2006
Published in association with the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) and introduced by its president, Sir Max Hastings, this beautifully designed coffee-table tome is a must for anyone who cherishes the British countryside. It offers a combination of stunning landscape photography and quintessentially English quotes, poetry, reminiscences, and anecdotes. With a chapter for each of England’s counties, it captures the superb peaks and tumbling waterfalls in the Lake District, the windswept moorland of the Yorkshire Dales, the dramatic cliffs at Land’s End, sunrise on the Norfolk Broads, the historic houses of Chatsworth and Burghley in the East Midlands, and many more locales.
