THE ENGLISH HEARTLAND Robert & Monica Beckinsale 1980
The ancient cities of Oxford, Stratford, Warwick and Windsor are set in a unique landscape of rolling farmland, thriving market towns and picturesque villages. This is the heart of England. A region of great natural beauty, it has been transformed by man since earliest times and is especially rich in memorials of his past, which include prehistoric and Anglo Saxon remains, Norman Castles, medieval boroughs and churches, country houses with fine landscaped gardens, and such watermills and the relics of steam railways. It is rich too in personal connections with famous historical figures, from Alfred the Great to William Shakespeare…
Includes black and white photographs and diagrams.
