Description

Heritage Unlocked is a new English Heritage series that aims to encourage visitors to explore some of our lesser-known sites. Each book covers one region of England, and will include features on the region's history, culture and character, as well as a concise but informative entry on each site, all fully illustrated in colour. OS maps, lists of useful websites and further reading, brief histories of each county, visitor directions to each site and information on joining English Heritage are also included. In a specially designed format - small square paperbacks with flaps - these new guides will appeal to general readers, new visitors and heritage enthusiasts alike. This book describes the essential features of English Heritage free sites in the Midlands region, covering territory from the Welsh borders to the North Sea coast. This part of England contains an extraordinary range of monuments, dating from the Neolithic period to the Industrial Revolution. They include enigmatic prehistoric stone circles and burial chambers in Derbyshire, Herefordshire and Shropshire; a length of Roman wall in Leicester; an impressive Iron Age hill fort; a thirteenth-century castle that was the birthplace of Henry IV; evocative remains of abbeys, monasteries and country houses; and Iron Bridge in Shropshire, Britain's best-known industrial monument.show more
