'This fascinating spotter's guide to Britain's historical landscape - what to see and how to decipher it - is rammed with intriguing nuggets.' Sunday Times 'A definitive classic field guide... Its scope is as magnificent as our countryside itself.'BBC Countryfile Magazine 'This book is perfect for anyone who's travelled through the countryside, scratched their head, and thought, `what on earth is that thing?' Tony Robinson For the times when you're driving past a lumpy, bumpy field and you wonder what made the lumps and bumps; for when you're walking between two lines of grand trees, wondering when and why they were planted; for when you see a brown heritage sign pointing to a `tumulus' but you don't know what to look for... Entertaining and factually rigorous, Hidden Histories will help you decipher the story of Britain's landscape through the features you can see around you. This spotter's guide arms the amateur explorer with the crucial information needed to `read' the landscape and spot the human activities that have shaped our green and pleasant land. Photographs and diagrams point out specific details and typical examples to help the curious spotter `get their eye in' and understand what they're looking at, or looking for. Specially commissioned illustrations bring to life the processes that shaped the landscape (from medieval ploughing to Roman road building). Stand-alone capsules explore interesting aspects of history (like the Highland Clearances or the coming of Christianity), and text boxes provide definitions of jargon or handy references as required (like a glossary of what different field names mean). Each chapter culminates in a checklist of key details to look for, other things it might be, and gives details of where to find some of the best examples in Britain.

Secret Houses of the Cotswolds
A personal tour of twenty of the UK's most beguiling houses in this much loved area of western England. Author and architectural historian, Jeremy Musson, and Cotswolds-based photographer Hugo Rittson Thomas, offer privileged access to twenty houses, from castles and manor houses, as well as eighteenth- and nineteenth-century mansions, revealing their history, architecture and interiors, in the company of their devoted owners. In the footsteps of artists and designers including Humphry and George Repton, and Victorian visionary, William Morris, who inspired the arts and crafts movement, and others such as Detmar Blow, Norman Jewson, Clough Williams-Ellis and Oliver Hill, we find a series of fascinating country houses of different sizes and atmospheres, which have shaped the English identity. Each house has their own story, but their distinctive honey-coloured stone walls, set amongst rolling hills, in different ways express the ideals of English life. Most of the houses included here are privately owned and not usually open to the public. In this beautifully produced book, they can now be enjoyed through the eyes of their owners, as well as an experienced architectural historian, and an award-winning photographer.

The Regent's Canal: An Urban Towpath Route from Little Venice to the Olympic Park
The Regent's Canal, the Limehouse Cut, the Hertford Union and the Lee Navigation collectively cut a swathe through north and east London. This 14 mile path, cycle and waterway is a journey full of intriguing contrasts: From the amateur sports fields of Regent's Park to London's new Olympic Park. From the studio where Hitchcock directed some of his early films to MTV in Camden Lock. From fine period housing to industrial wasteland, social housing and new canalside builds. From the pleasure boats chugging to Camden to the sleek Eurostars roaring off to Paris. The use of canals has changed dramatically over the past fifty years from one of industrial transportation to waterfront living and leisure activities. The canals in this book have undergone major phases of rebirth with new developments at King's Cross, Limehouse and the Olympic Park in Newham. Illustrator David Fathers offers a snapshot of how the canals were formed and how they appear today, in a series of arresting and information-packed pages following a course from Little Venice to the River Thames at Limehouse, and on to the Olympic Park.

Quiet London
Where can Londoners and visitors find quiet places to meet and talk? London is an exciting place to be, but not everyone wants to be in a noisy environment listening to loud music. Perhaps they want to be somewhere where they can read a book, or sit and linger for a while. Many visitors to the capital long to discover places off the beaten track - find a delightful garden to sit in or a tree-lined walk by a river. Busy Londoners are often looking for somewhere to go which is an alternative to lively venues; a place where things are understated rather than grabbing their attention... Quiet London is a guide to quiet places to meet, drink, eat, swim, rest, shop, sleep or read. It includes interesting, attractive places where people don't have to strain to hear each other speak. There are short descriptions for each venue, alongside travel and contact details and simple but atmospheric photographs in colour and black and white.

Remaking a Garden
The garden at the Laskett in Herefordshire is always described as the largest formal garden laid out in Britain since the war and one of most important and most interesting gardens of the second half of the twentieth century. Roy Strong and his wife, Julia Trevelyan Oman - two pivotal figures in the arts during the last century - created this uniquely autobiographical and historical garden over thirty years of their marriage. However, by the time Julia died in 2003, the garden at The Laskett had become overgrown and closed in on itself. And so started 'the great cull'. The Laskett garden is still 'peopled with the ghosts of nearly everyone we have loved, both living and dead', but trees and hedges have been chopped down, paths widened, vistas opened up. Light has been let in. This book is a record of the remaking of The Laskett garden, traced in Roy Strong's words and photographer Clive Boursnell's before-and-after pictures and action shots. It is an inspiration, for 'its message is one for all garden-makers. Do not be afraid to change your garden - indeed to be quite brutal to it - in order to give it new energy and excitement. 'As a piece of theatre there are few modern gardens to touch it. Stephen Lacey, Daily Telegraph

This magnificent book presents a detailed portrait of the buildings, the landmarks and the scenery of the old county of Westmorland. First published in 1975 to mark the incorporation of the county into Cumbria, it has been in demand ever since as both a record of a lost county, as an informed and engaging record of one of the loveliest and least spoiled parts of Britain, where nature, culture and history have combined to leave a memorable and exhilarating legacy. Every single parish is included, with its notable buildings or landscapes mapped and illustrated, and its historical or other features of interest discussed and described. Though written by an amateur, for amateurs the author's deep knowledge of and close familiarity with the countryside pervade and illuminate the text and the two thousand line drawings.

Wainwright' s meticulously hand-drawn maps, diagrams and drawings take walkers up the 214 principal hills and mountains of the Lake District, describing the main routes of ascent from different starting points, as well as lesser-known variants, showing the summit viewpoint panoramas and the ridge routes that can be made to create longer walks. Every page combines words and illustrations to present the routes in a way that is original, visually appealing and easy to follow. This new edition of Wainwright' s Walking Guide to the Lake District Fells has been comprehensively revised. Paths, maps, diagrams and route descriptions have been checked and corrected throughout. These revisions have been undertaken by writer and designer Clive Hutchby, author of The Wainwright Companion. The Eastern Fells, Book One of Wainwright' s Walking Guides, covers the area north of Ambleside, between Ullswater and Thirlmere, and includes the ascents of popular fells such as Helvellyn, Catstycam, Fairfield and Red Screes.

London Thames Path
David Fathers presents a unique and richly illustrated guide to the London section of the Thames Path, which runs along both banks of the river from Putney Bridge to the Thames Barrier. Together, the two paths make up a panoramic 40-mile walk through 2000 years of London's history. * From the old docks and wharves that primed the Industrial Revolution, through the heart of British Government, Monarchy and Church to the City of London that took its very existence from the river. * From the site of the Putney Debates at St Mary's Church to Wren's mighty baroque cathedral of St Paul's. * From the great Victorian engineering works of Sir Joseph Bazalgette and his attempts to clean up a polluted London and the river to the Thames Barrier seeking to protect huge parts of London from rising sea levels. * From London Bridge, site of the oldest crossing point, to the Millennium Bridge, the Thames' newest crossing. This book explains the panorama we see today, what came before and how the changes came about. Each double page shows the distance covered so you can plan your own tour of the river.

Remote Britain: Landscape, People and Books
Remote Britain relishes the ever-changing great landscapes of our island and the people who grow out of them. And the constant surprises. Who realises how sharp are the contrasts to be found within the Isles of Scilly or the Isle of Wight, how remote it is possible to feel in Essex, or how extraordinary is 'Yorkshire's teardrop', Spurn Point, way out in the Humber estuary? As in his acclaimed Journey Through Britain to which this is a worthy successor, Mr Thomas finds remains of railways and even active steam trains in the most unlikely of places, stays in hotels to fall in love with or to hate, and is never short of people to express their own views, as he does colourfully himself in chapters such as In the Footsteps of the Queen Mother. Here is a book to dip into, savour and refer to many times.

The Southern Fells: Pictorial Guides to the Lakeland Fells Book 4 (Lake District & Cumbria)
The Southern Fells include the highest, roughest, grandest fells in Lakeland including the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike. Wainwright - a fell-walking legend in his own lifetime - knew the terrain and conveyed its grandeur and beauty like nobody else. In this unique Pictorial Guide, he writes of the glorious curves and simple grandeur of Great Langdale; of Wasdale, 'an emerald amongst sombre hills'; of enchanting Borrowdale; of the sparkling radiance of the Duddon; and of the most delectable valley of all - Eskdale, 'sanctuary of peace and solitude'. This second edition of The Southern Fells has been brilliantly revised by Chris Jesty, a trained cartographer who worked with Wainwright on some of the maps in his later large-format guides. All footpaths have been rewalked, all routes checked, all maps and text updated. Paths and routes have been picked out in red to make them easier to follow, and parking information has been added. This new edition of the classic walking guide is Wainwright for the 21st century.
