Journeys Through England in Particular: Coasting
Drawn from the critically acclaimed England In Particular, this delightful book pairs with Journeys Through England in Particular: On Foot to form a new series celebrating English local distinctiveness - ideal for travellers, holiday-makers and armchair browsers. England In Particular, first published in 2006, is a celebration of the distinctive details that cumulatively make England - its buildings, landscapes, people and wildlife. It was the culmination of more than twenty years' work by Sue Clifford and Angela King, who founded the charity Common Ground with Roger Deakin. These small hardbacks will appeal to anyone curious about the particularities of the landscape, from Bandstands to Beach Huts, Pantiles to Piers, Sand Dunes to Shellfish. They are edited thematically to create the perfect pocket-sized books for taking with you to the countryside or coast, and will prove good companions wherever you are in England.
