About this book

The Shropshire Hills were designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1958, and remain to this day one of the most beautiful, tranquil and unspoilt parts of the country. They have been a popular holiday destination since Victorian times and now attract over half a million visitors a year. Yet get away from the popular valleys and hiking trails and you may not see another person all day.

The Hills are well known for the astonishing variety of their scenery, plants and wildlife, which is due to the varied nature of their underlying rocks. Nowhere else in Britain can one find rocks from ten out of the twelve recognised periods of geological history within such a small area. This beautifully produced book, illustrated with over 150 of Robin Jukes-Hughes’ stunning landscape and natural history photographs, captures the Shropshire Hills in all their glory and will be a fine memento for visitor and local alike.
