About this book

The Natural Beauty of Cornwall is the ideal companion to help you explore a landscape of quite extraordinary variety. From the wild northern coast to the peaceful estuaries of the south and from the high windswept moors and heaths to the hidden wooded valleys, this book captures the very essence of Cornwall.

Author Peter Maxted has lived in the area for some thirty years during which time he has keenly explored the length and breadth of it on foot, by bike and by boat. Concentrating mainly on the third of the country that is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as well as the 'gateway' towns, The Natural Beauty of Cornwall delves into geology, history, the rich industrial heritage and, of course, the astonishing scenery of one of the most beautiful counties in the British Isles.
