Book Description:

The latest in the popular and prize-winning series of A Year in the Life books is a portrait of the Welsh Marches that reveals the landscape, fauna and flora and architectural legacy of this unspoilt and beguiling part of the country throughout the seasons. Primarily comprising the counties bordering England and Wales (Shropshire, Herefordshire, Monmouthshire), the region is made up of an enchanting mixture of mountains and moorland, farms and wooded river valleys and also contains a remarkable number of Norman motte-and-bailey castles. Because the Welsh Marches contain few major conurbations, the countryside remains largely untainted by urban sprawl -  its market towns, villages and landscapes, though very much of the present, have managed to retain their atmospheric links with the past.
