About this book

"This diatribe against the uglification of our green and pleasant land is no less appropriate today than when first published in 1928 [...] Nearly 70 years on, his observations could pass for our own, and however much endangered or abused, our rural England remains every bit as much worth saving. Congratulations to CPRE for republishing this book, at the same time quirky, passionate and humourous, which may again inspire resistance to the continuing destruction of our precious countryside."
- Oliver Tickell, BBC Wildlife
