The English landscape changed more radically in the twentieth century than it had over the previous thousand years. In this eye-opening book, Trevor Rowley shows vividly what changed and why. The countryside, now a dormitory or holiday destination, employed less than one percent of the population by 2000. In contrast, cities and towns, dominated by the megalopolis of London, expanded massively. Life, and the landscape, became ruled by the car. Regional identities disappeared as national chains and uniform building styles began to be found from Penzance to Carlisle. Uplands and country houses became theme parks often overrun by visitors. Two world wars and changing patterns of work and leisure also left their imprint.
