About this book

Located at the heart of the northwest of England, Martin Mere is a vast marsh that, until it was drained in 1700, was the largest lake in England. This fascinating volume explores the history of the mere, from Thomas Fleetwood's drainage proposal, to the ensuing dramatic transformations of the area's wildlife, up to the mere's current status as a protected nature reserve. Copiously illustrated, A History of Martin Mere provides a comprehensive portrait of one of the most striking areas of natural beauty in all the British Isles.
