The National Forest: Heritage in the Making By James Parry


This limited edition book reveals the history of the landscape that has become The National Forest. Spanning the last 10,000 years, it investigates the landscape’s underlying geology, the natural history, the agriculture, the buildings and industries, the people, customs and traditions and its present dramatic transformation through the creation of the Forest. The book is written in a lively narrative style and is packed with over 120 full colour and black and white photographs plus specially commissioned colour illustrations by John Davies and Richard Bonson. Each of the 6 chapters make a visual statement, opening with a stunning double page, specially commissioned illustration - a reconstruction bringing an aspect of that chapter springing off the page. Each chapter is rich in local examples and colourful case studies, highlighted in box features. This hard back 200 page book is available as a limited run only.
