A Portrait of the Surrey Hills Paperback / softback



"A Portrait of the Surrey Hills" encompasses some of the most beautiful countryside in England, celebrated by writers as diverse as Charles Dickens and William Cobbett.

In this highly readable book, local journalist Jane Garrett explores the countryside she has known since she was a child, combining the intimate knowledge gained from extensive forays both on horseback and on foot with specialist journalistic knowledge of heritage landscapes and rural economy.

Celebrating 50 years as an area of outstanding natural beauty, Jane Garrett examines every aspect of the Surrey Hills, including geography and archaeology, history and architecture, wildlife and local industry to paint a truly three-dimensional portrait of an enchanting landscape.
