From the cover: Accompanying the 13-part BBC2 series, COAST is both a superbly illustrated celebration of the UKs coastal areas and a practical guide to all that they have to offer.
Let experienced natural history journalist and coastal rambler Christopher Somerville take you on a grand tour of the outer limits of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Beautiful photography, clear maps and evocative essays illuminate the majesty and variety to be found where Britain meets the sea. This is, after all, the longest coastline in Europe.
From the dramatic cliffs of Eastbournes Beachy Head to the spare beauty of the Norfolk saltmarshes; from storm-wracked Cape Wrath at the edge of the Scottish Highlands to the peaceful wooded creeks of Cornwalls Helford river; from the bright lights of Blackpool to the English Riviera of Torquay whatever sort of coast you prefer, youll find it here.
For those who want to see it for themselves, COAST also features a detailed gazetteer -a region-by-region reference of places, people, activities, natural history, historic events and fascinating facts all clearly laid out to help you plan your own trip.
Whether destined for the coffee table, your reference library or the car, COAST takes you with charm and style to where the land meets the sea.
