This beautiful book, recently reprinted due to demand, explores the countryside of Lincolnshire from the Wash to the Humber, revealing its rich natural heritage and ecology, as well as the fascinating and layered human history that has left traces in the landscape of every period from prehistoric to the present.
The book combines informative and accessible text with inspiring colour photographs taken specially by the author that have not previously been published. The photographs illustrate the natural and historic features described in the text, while also celebrating the neglected aesthetic qualities of Lincolnshire’s landscape, including its sweeping views and extraordinary skies.
Resulting from several years of field exploration and research by local author Jon Fox, the book offers an informed personal perspective on Lincolnshire’s rural landscape. Above all, it promotes greater appreciation of England’s second largest county and encourages the conservation of its landscape diversity, character and beauty for future generations. Perceptions that Lincolnshire is wholly flat and of limited scenic value are investigated and challenged in this context.
