  • Information


The period covered by this book, first published in 1987, was an important one for the rural landscape in England.

The author describes and analyses the evolution of the countryside during the years which witnessed the gradual disappearance of the medieval landscape and the introduction of new farming methods and industrial techniques, thus laying the foundation for the radical changes that were to transform the English countryside in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

The main features of the countryside are dealt with fully and examples are given of their remains which can still be identified in the landscape today.
