9780007316557: The Weald (Collins New Naturalist Library, Book 26)

The Weald is one of the most wooded areas of the British Isles and although densely populated it preserves many of its natural beauties. This edition is exclusive to

A country of rolling downs, quiet woods and green fields, the Weald occupies the greater part of the counties of Kent, Surrey, and Sussex, with a fringe of Hampshire. It has a marked community of its own, yet within the rim of chalk downs that forms its natural boundary is a remarkable diversity of sandy heathlands to rich loams, from waterless chalklands to tidal marshes.

Professor Wooldrige put the results of a lifetime's research and exploration into this New Naturalists volume. It remains an unrivalled introduction to the understanding and enjoyment of this lovely region and of its natural history in the widest sense.


"…Geography and geology are happily blended. Delightfully illustrated and superb pictures (many in colour) and with an abundance of maps and diagrams, the book discusses every conceivable aspect of the area with an authority which cannot be questioned. This book can be confidently recommended." Kentish Times.
