Cornfields, meadows, ancient woodlands, the wetlands of East Anglia, cathefral closes, stone-built villages, all conjure up images of England. But many of our most cherished landscapes and village communities are under threat. From the Lake District to Dartmoor the ever increasing march of progress fuelled by private profit, ‘local gain’, government requirement or the national interest is laying siege to the heartland of England

Ever alert in the defence of Britain’s heritage, the Council for the Protection of Rural England has become serioiusly alarmed at the scale and speed of the destruction now contemplated. This book is a record of 24 of the most beautiful places in England, each photographed by 24 outstanding photographers, including Heather Angel, David Bailey, Terence Donovan, Christopher Joyce, Patrick Lichfield, Linda McCartney, Snowdon, Koo Stark, Michael Westmoreland. We are content to live in sprawls of concrete because we know beyond their margins the hen harriers, buttercups, otters, meadows and woodlands of our imagination are there still. But each of the landscapes in this book had a question mark over its future as the photographs were taken. Hardcover. Published by Weidenfeld And Nicholson 1987
