Martin Mere is a first-class, year-round wetland wildlife atrractions, with a diversity of waterbird exhibits. Situated in the beautiful countryside of central Lancashire in northwest England, the mere is a vast marsh that, until it was drained in 1700, was the largest lake in England. This fascinating volume explores the history of the mere, from Thomas Fleetwood's drainage proposal to the ensuing dramatic transformations of the area's wildlife to the mere's present-day status as a protected nature reserve. Heavily illustrated, A History of Martin Mere provides a comprehensive look at one of the most striking areas of natural beauty in all the British Isles. It will be an essential resource for tourists, naturalists, and historians alike.
