From the cover: Some of the finest scenery in Europe is contained in the national parks of England and Wales. These special places offer a diversity of landscapes, from dramatic coastlines to awe-inspiring mountains, together with unparalleled opportunities for people to explore and enjoy the countryside.
There are ten national parks: Northumberland, the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and the Peak District in Northern England; Dartmoor and Exmoor in the South West and Brecon Beacons, the Pembrokeshire Coast and Snowdonia in Wales. Also included is the Norfolk Broads, a national park in all but name.
This book highlights the characteristics of each of the parks and introduces the forces that have shaped these landscapes. Geology and natural history, human settlement over the centuries and the conservation work undertaken by todays National Park Authorities have all made an impression on these areas. They are favourite places of the author, whose enthusiasm for them is undimmed after many visits.
These outstandingly beautiful areas are vividly portrayed through the colour photographs that illustrate this book, together with the maps and factual information that provide a useful source of reference for all who have an interest in the national parks of England and Wales.
