Customer Review

on 25 November 2013
The author and National Trust chairman chooses his one hundred favourite views in what he calls his "celebration of the hills, valleys, rivers, woods and fields that compose the landscape of England".

His choices range from iconic ones like the White Cliffs of Dover and Hadrian's Wall to those which are less well known, such as the cricket field at Little Bredy in Dorset. He discovers the fascinating stories behind these locations, and shows how many of them have inspired artists and writers. He also considers our emotional responses to the landscape, "the impact it makes on the eye and the imagation".

A consistently readable and often thought-provoking survey of the English landscape.

Since there seems to be some confusion as to the size of the book, it is approximately 9" by 6", or a similar size to his 'England's Thousand Best Churches' and 'England's Thousand Best Houses'; so it's not a large coffee-table size
