Product description


For a relatively small county, Dorset possesses an amazing variety of landscapes. The coast has long been recognised as nationally and internationally outstanding. However, much of the interior displays scenery of such quality that it has been declared an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and generally the rural landscape of the entire county has an instinctive appeal. The variety of scenic contrasts is often sharp, sometimes subtle, and throughout owing much to the geological basis of the county. John Chaffey offers an expert but accessible guide to the rocks and soils, weathering and erosion, that have shaped the face of Dorset over millions of years. Dividing the county into seven distinct units he explains how each came to have its present appearance and then focuses in detail upon the most prominent landscape sites within them - from Birts Hill in North Dorset to the Agglestone in the Isle of Purbeck, and from Beacon Hill in East Dorset to Abbotsbury in the West. Illustrated throughout with colour photographs, and maps, The Dorset Landscape is the indispensable handbook to the county's scenery.
