The British landscape is changing for ever - and faster than ever. This book analyses the causes and consequences, and what can be done to make our cities, towns and countryside better places. British landscapes - from the tip of Scotland to the toe of Cornwall, including the cities - are under huge pressure from shifting population and increasing travel, climate change, new patterns or work and leisure, and changing farming practices. Many fear that these changes can only damage the landscape, but this is not the whole story. For example, the 'edgelands' around big cities have blossoming wildlife and are home to endangered species. And the current crisis in farming gives a chance to do things better in the arable lowlands as well as in the livestock uplands. Twelve expert contributors, including Simon Jenkins, Crispin Tickell, Marion Shoard, David Cannadine and Philip Lowe, develop exciting ideas covering such issues as the urban landscape, climate change, the aftermath of foot-and-mouth, ecology and sustainable development. Bryn Green and Oliver Rackham discuss the future of the countryside where farming is in retreat: will it be preserved as an ersatz museum, will low-density building proliferate or will the land revert to scrub and then to woodland. Other contributors include; David Banister, David Cannadine, John I Clarke, Bryn Green, Ian Hodge, James Hunter, Simon Jenkins, Richard Keen, Uwe Latacz-Lohmann, Philip Lowe, Oliver Rackham, Marion Shoard and Crispin Tickell.

Synopsis:

British landscapes - from the tip of Scotland to the toe of Cornwall, including the cities - are under huge pressure from shifting population and increasing travel, climate change, new patterns of work and leisure, and changing farming practices. Many fear that these changes can only damage the landscape, but this is not the whole story. For example, the 'edgelands' around big cities have blossoming wildlife and are home to endangered species. And the current crisis in farming gives a chance to do things better in future. Twelve expert contributors, including Simon Jenkins, Crispin Tickell, Oliver Rackham, Marion Shoard, Philip Lowe and David Cannadine, develop exciting ideas, covering such issues as the urban landscape, climate change, woodlands, the aftermath of foot and mouth, ecology and sustainable development. With essays on Scotland and Wales by James Hunter and Richard Keen, and an introduction and afterword by Jennifer Jenkins, this is an important, stimulating and intelligent account of the land we live on.
