LANDshapes Proudly Presents....
‘The National Forest: Heritage in the Making’ book which was published in spring 2006

LANDshapes: Heritage in the makingThis lavishly illustrated, 200 page book spans the last 10,000 years looking at the history of the landscape that has become The National Forest and the people who have created that landscape.

Written by noted author James Parry the book investigates the underlying geology, the natural history, the agriculture, the buildings and industries, the people, customs and traditions and the present dramatic transformation through the creation of the Forest.

James provides a lively narrative, bringing the story of the landscape to life. In preparing the book he interviewed many local people (perhaps you were one of them!) and the content reflects the immediacy and colour brought by their contributions.

‘The National Forest Heritage in the Making’ is packed with full colour and black and white photographs plus specially commissioned colour illustrations by John Davies and Richard Bonson.

This beautiful hardback book is on sale at £12 and there are still some copies left!
