Countryfile is one of the most successful and much-loved TV series on the BBC, with 20 years of programming and over 6 million viewers. This is the first book to tie in with the programme and celebrate the British countryside, by showcasing 100 unmissable places to visit, as chosen by "The Countryfile" team. A call to arms for us to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, this book will show you where to find landscapes of great beauty, nature reserves and National Trails to explore, sites of historical or cultural interest as well as attractions that have appealed to "Countryfile" over the years - the secluded meadows of Swaledale, the ancient beech trackway at Linley and the herring festival at Clovelly, not to mention the World Stinging Nettle Championships. Illustrated with over 150 lavish colour photographs, contributions from Julia Bradbury, Matt Baker and John Craven, and with practical information to help you plan your perfect day out, this book will capitalise on the huge success of the TV series and our ever-growing love of the British countryside.
