About this book

Drawn from a decade of the In the Countryside columns published in the Eastern Daily Press, From Field and Fen explores our relationship with place and the countryside. From Field and Fen is the result of looking; of spending time within a few small patches of landscape and of becoming attuned to the shifts and fluxes that would otherwise have been missed. It is a book about feeling and understanding, that moves with the seasons and responds to the external pressures that are an inevitable consequence of the increasing demands on our land.

"With so much water in the air and seemingly oozing from the sodden ground I am drawn towards the river. The waters are brown with silt washed from the fields; in places they push their way up towards the lip of the bank, as if straining to reclaim the vast puddles that cover the bank-side path. The fallen leaves of willow carpet the ground. Sodden with the rain, their grey undersides resemble small, lifeless fish, disgorged by the angry waters."
