Product description


`Buildings can be saved for all time, but villages need saving every year. They need their champions. Mr Aslet has given them a sound weapon.' --Country Life

`a delight to dip into...an exploration but also a celebration of our countryside'
--Eastern Daily Press

'This joyous collection explains why rural life matters to the British psyche' --Sunday Telegraph

'"Villages of Britain" is a deliciously browsable guidebook as well as a glittering store of anecdote and esoteric information.' -- The Wall St. Journal

'The feeling you are left with after reading Clive Aslet's monumental guide to rural Britain is of having been shown a great deal while remaining aware that this is hardly the whole story... a thoughtful, witty guide.' -- The Guardian

About the Author

Clive Aslet joined Country Life in 1977, and is now Editor at Large. He writes extensively for national newspapers, and often broadcasts on radio and television. His most recent books were the highly acclaimed Landmarks of Britain and The English House. An authority on British life, Clive is well known as a campaigner on countryside and other issues. Married with three children, he divides his time between London and Ramsgate.
