About this title

Synopsis:

Villages are the very embodiment of Englishness. Honey coloured cottages from peaceful Cornwall communities; splendid thatched roofs sweeping over eaves and windows in the villages of Hampshire; half-timbering, flint and limestone giving Suffolk hamlets their characteristic appearance; and limestone, sandstone and millstone grit giving a darker look to those of Yorkshire, Durham and Northumberland. This volume records the richness and diversity of the English village in photographs and commentary. Grouped by area and sub-divided by county, this is a celebration of the most beautiful villages of England.

About the Author:

James Bentley, a distinguished travel writer, is the author of The Most Beautiful Villages of Tuscany, The Most Beautiful Villages of the Dordogne, and To Live in France, all published by Thames and Hudson. Hugh Palmer is a leading photographer of architecture and gardens. He has contributed to numerous books in The Most Beautiful Villages series.
