One never knows quite what one is going to get from a book like this: A nostalgic evocation of the ruddy squire and ploughman or an earnest discourse on alluvial sludge. David Dymond gives us infinitely more.

This is extraordinary book. Chapter by chapter we move through history, watching the development of the Norfolk landscape as human beings shape it. Without any rosy, dewy-eyed nonsense, one does indeed grow aware of how detached from nature the industrial age has become. One line will always live with me, and is all the more powerful for being in the middle of an entirely neutral discussion: ""The thirteenth century... countryside was used intensively, and with an ecological sensitivity that makes twentieth century farming look like open-cast mining". But that is only a peripheral theme.

To simply list the contents would be pointless. As someone with an almost obsessive attachment to the history and topography of few obscure patches, I frequently found myself thinking "well, he won't mention that". At which point, of course, "he" immediately did, telling me things I could never have known. This is an amazingly comprehensive, delightfully written book that will immeasurably enrich your feeling for and understanding of the Norfolk landscape. And I'll never look on Castle Acre in quite the same light again! If you love Norfolk, you'll love this. Buy it without a moments hesitation.
