Synopsis: Andy Garnett and his wife, the writer Polly Devlin, bought Cannwood Meadow in 1983. Realizing that this Somerset meadow, which has benefited from benign husbandry over many years, contains an amazing variety of wild flowers, grasses and rushes that provide feeding for moths, butterflies and other insects – some of them very rare – they asked English Nature if they would be interested in making a survey of the field. As a result of this survey Cannwood Meadow was nominated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) by the Nature Conservancy Council.
This book presents an illustrated record of Cannwood Meadow through the seasons, an account of its ecology and a review of its plants, animal life and husbandry, compiled by the Garnetts with the assistance of botanist Dr Chris Smith. A special feature is that it includes reproductions of pressings of 108 plants, which can thus be examined in minute detail. It is an invaluable record of a year in the life of an English meadow.
About the Author: Andy Garnett is an engineer, a philanthropist and an optimist. He spent most of his professional life working in advanced tech industry and has lived in North America and Japan. His book Steel Wheels, a tribute to the world of railways, was published in 2005. POLLY DEVLIN grew up in County Tyrone, on the shores of Belfast Lough, in the fifties. Her first job was as a writer for Vogue magazine for which she became features editor. She has also been a columnist for The Sunday Times, The New Statesman, and The Observer. She has written two highly-acclaimed autobiographical books, The Far Side of the Lough and All of Us There and a novel, Dora, published by Chatto. She now divides her time between Dublin, London and her home in Somerset. She describes her first job, as a writer on Vogue: 'I was twenty-one. One minute I was lurching on the bus to Belfast, the next I was going to Tehran to interview the Empress Farah Dibah'. This collection felt to her like 'writing home'.
