Description
 

THE MAKING OF THE ENGLISH LANDSCAPE - the author sets out to show why the hedgebanks and lanes of Devon are so totally different from those of the Midlands, why there are so many ruined churches in Norfolk and so many lost villages in Lincolnshire and what history lies behind the winding ditches of the Somerset marshlands, the remote granite farmsteads of Cornwall and the lonely pastures of upland Northamptonshire. He is concerned with the way s in which men have cleared the natural woodlands, reclaimed marshlands, fen and moor, made roads, lanes, footpaths, laid out towns, built villages, hamlets, and farm houses, country houses and parks, dug mines and driven canals and railways across the countryside - in short, with everything that has altered the natural landscape.
