Description:

A complete natural history and survey of this unique part of Britain, the borderland between England and Wales. Its distinctive geography, wedged roughly between Welsh mountains and English river beds has not only isolated this rural, sparsely-populated slice of land, but created a unique identity. Stretching along the bordering counties with England Cheshire, Shropshire and Herefordshire the Welsh Marches are made up of a mixture of mountains and moorlands, farms and wooded river valleys. The natural history of the region is like most parts of the British Isles inextricably linked to the activities of man across many thousands of years. The author brings together a wealth of material in this volume, much of which is published for the first time. The book presents a complete natural history of the area, covering the hills, fossils, ice ages, meres, mosses, forests, streams and rivers, whilst also focusing on man's impact on the region, the changing wildlife, the impact of agriculture and the consequences of past and present industrial action.
