Explore the British countryside with the National Trust. No organisation knows more about the British countryside than the National Trust, the custodians of some of our most beautiful stretches of land and coastline. Drawing on their expertise, this stunningly illustrated book is a comprehensive guide to the country's natural heritage. Part One describes the major habitats and landscapes: coasts, mountains, forests and woods, rivers and lakes, meadows and downland. The formation, development and ecology of each habitat is described and brought to life with photographs and indepth information on the wildlife you can see there. Find out about the secretive migrations of our eels, salmon and sea trout, an exploding bombardier beetle, a totally aquatic moth or delight in the beauty of our fields of heather, our sea of bluebells in woodlands and our ever-changing coastline. Part Two gets you closer to specific areas of the British isles with coverage of the regions South West England, Southern England, Central England, Northern England, Eastern England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. It provides a tour of the key landscapes of each of our regions, from an exploration of the Lake District to why the White Cliffs of Dover are white. Plus some of the best walks in each of the regions. From the thousand-year-old limbs of yew trees near Crom Old Castle, Northern Ireland to the lake of bluebells on the Isle of Wight (the 'ghost' of what was probably a wood), this is a celebration of our land.

Most of the tried and tested plants we grow in our gardens today are species which originated in other parts of the world. The earliest explorers brought back seeds and plants from their travels, and a similar spirit of adventure and love of a challenge has prompted gardeners throughout history to see if they could successfully cultivate these exotic "aliens" on home soil and in the often more testing conditions of the northern climate. But the main reason why many of these plants are beloved by gardeners is for their beauty, and the dramatic variations of color and form they can add to an existing display. This book presents a selection of the very best of such plants from all over the world, now growing at National Trust properties in the British Isles. Beautifully illustrated with photographs of the plants in bloom and at their peak, this book provides a valuable visual reference source for the gardener and garden designer. An expert text gives details of ideal growing conditions and cultivation to enable you to create your own version of a miniature tour of the world or a "World in a Garden."

Rebecca's Manderley, Jane Eyre's Thornfield, Pride and Prejudice's Pemberley -- just the names of these fictional English estates conjure up romantic images of majestic architecture, sweeping gardens, impressive artworks, and lavish interiors. This illustrated volume takes readers on a grand tour of the real-life counterparts to these fictional stately homes, and draws on letters, drawings, paintings, and journals to trace their appeal to visitors through four centuries. Visiting historic houses has a long tradition in England. Elizabethans marveled at royal and private palaces such as Hampton Court in Surrey and Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire. Victorian sightseers took advantage of the brand-new railroad to see grand homes like Chatsworth and Knole, descending in droves on their elaborately landscaped grounds. Adrian Tinniswood explains the phenomenon of tourism and why millions continue to visit these and other country houses and their gardens, many of them maintained by the National Trust.
