COTSWOLDS AREA OF OUTSTANDING NATURAL BEAUTY
This book is about the landscapes of the Cotswolds, its architecture, customs and culture. Here is quintessential rural England at its most idyllic, from the thrilling western escarpment and beech woods to historic estates and golden-stone villages built in the famous limestone that gives the area its unique harmony.
Captured in a feast of images, the landscape slowly reveals its stories: etched on rolling hills and in fields and hidden valleys by those whose presence lingers in Neolithic long barrows and Roman villas, grand churches and manor houses that echo the wealth of the medieval wool trade.
Designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1966, the Cotswolds is among the country's most cherished places to live, work and visit: alive with colourful and rare flora and fauna, inspiring artists and writers, and bursting with eccentric traditions. Innovation is intrinsic to its character just as much as enchanting, timeless scenes.
This book - captivatingly photographed, exquisitely designed and sensitively written - celebrates what makes the Cotswolds so special, coaxing out its secrets and inviting you to look again and again at this much-loved, precious landscape.
96-page, 238mm (deep) x 247mm (wide), case bound hardback. 169 full-colour photographs, 3 black and white photographs and 7 monochrome illustrations and 3 maps.
Price: £14.99 (+£2.80 UK P&P)
