Riassunto: By the author of "The Perfect English Country House", this work represents Candida Lycett Green's quest for the unspoilt corners of England, those quiet locations and sequestered villages and buildings that have been untouched by modern development and retain their natural charm. The author visits Kelmscott Manor, the home of William Morris; and Patrishow Church in Breconshire, a remote resort of pilgrims, preserved and restored over the centuries. She discovers Shropshire's eccentric Clun, once a busy market town, now a quiet artist's haunt; and rediscovers the beauty of Frampton, birthplace of Rosamund Clifford, hidden between the M5 and the River Severn. She travels to Surrey to visit the resting place of G.F. Watts and revels in winter in Wistman's Wood on Dartmoor, where the wet and the wilderness cast a spell of their own. At Ford, a few miles from Flodden Field, quirky personalities and violent clashes have combined to give the border village a peculiarly interesting history; while in the Westernmost part of Wiltshire, at Hindon, farmers, painters and retired colonels still rub shoulders at an inn which used to entertain smugglers and coachmen.
From Library Journal:
Many books about England focus on well-known tourist destinations, landmarks, and popular historical sights. English traveler Green maintains "much of England remains unwrecked" and offers a different slant to her travel coverage by celebrating the ordinary and unexpected-traditionally English places she has discovered. These 50 essays from her newspaper column? offer an excellent sampler to local treasures in various counties. Through a descriptive narrative and delightful tidbits of information, one learns much about the architecture, ambience, and splendors of such places as the railroad station in York, Northumberland's Flodden Field, and Watt's Mortuary Chapel in Surrey; one gets a distinct sense of being there. Black-and-white photographs and four short tours complete this outstanding travel reference, which enlightens readers and would serve as a great guide for frequent visitors.
