About this book

From the British Geological Survey – a walkers' guide to the landscape and natural environment of The National Forest. This is a 106 page printed A5 book with a folded walkers' map at 1:50,000, presented in a folded plastic wallet. When you walk in The National Forest you will encounter a wide variety of landscapes. In the east are the uplands of Charnwood Forest with its craggy outcrops of ancient rocks, whereas farther west, younger rocks underlie a more gently undulating topography, dissected by valleys that include the river Trent and tributaries.

This map and book pack shows you how the landscapes and natural resources of The National Forest have influenced human development from very early archaeological times through to the Industrial Revolution and the present day. Large areas were modified by activities such as mining that relied on rich geological reserves, including coal, gypsum and hard-rock aggregate. For everyone from the casual Sunday stroller to the keen hiker, the landscape of The National Forest is rich with stories to tell and explore.

From the early signs of life on Earth through to the creation of a new forest in the 21st century, Exploring the Landscape of The National Forest and map will unlock stories millions of years in the making.
