The Countryside of England, Wales, and Northern Ireland
When the National Trust was founded in 1895, its remit was to preserve places of historic interest or natural beauty. The first property to be given to the infant organization was four and a half acres of coastland overlooking Cardigan Bay in Wales. When one of the National Trust's founders, Octavia Hill, heard of this gift, she noted: "We have got our first piece of property, I wonder if it will be our last." It would have been beyond her wildest dreams to know that today the Trust looks after over 240,000 hectares of beautiful countryside and 550 miles of outstanding coast.
This superbly illustrated book celebrates these places of natural beauty in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Join three of Britain's leading landscape photographers in a tour of stunning country side.
