The Natural Beauty of Cornwall

Peter Maxted

£15.99

The Natural Beauty of Cornwall is the ideal companion to help you explore a landscape of quite extraordinary variety. From the wild northern coast to the peaceful estuaries of the south and from the high windswept moors and heaths to the hidden wooded valleys, this book captures the very essence of Cornwall.

Author Peter Maxted has lived in the area for some thirty years during which time he has keenly explored the length and breadth of it on foot, by bike and by boat. Concentrating mainly on the third of the county that is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as the ‘gateway’ towns, The Natural Beauty of Cornwall delves into geology, history, the rich industrial heritage and, of course, the astonishing scenery of one of the most beautiful counties in the British Isles.

• Half a million people live in Cornwall and most feel a deep affinity with their land and landscape. Over 5 million visitors also come to Cornwall every year – and keep coming back. For Cornwall ‘delivers’; it is beautiful, unspoilt and unique. This book showcases that beauty.
• The Cornish ‘diaspora’ also numbers in millions. All over the world, but particularly in Australia, South Africa, Mexico and the USA, Cornish ex-pats retain a deep affection for their original home and love, and buy, all things Cornish.
• A beautifully illustrated book with approximately two hundred contemporary colour photographs
