EXPLORE ENGLAND 2018
If you love England, the English countryside, English history and English customs and traditions, you will not want to be without the latest edition of Explore England.
• TRANSPORTS OF DELIGHT: We pay a visit to the Oxford Bus Museum, where exhibits such as a preserved horse- drawn tram, motor buses, coaches and a wide selection of artefacts recall travel in days gone by. Classic Morris cars and 40 vintage bicycles are also on display.
• NORTHUMBERLAND’S CROWNING GLORIES: Celebrating the climb and spectacular views from the county’s highest peaks of Cheviot and Hedgehope.
• FOTHERINGHAY’S PLACE IN ROYAL HISTORY: This tiny Northamptonshire village, site of a former castle, boasts a wealth of royal history including the birth of Richard III and the execution of Mary, Queen of Scots. We go on a journey of discovery.
• WELCOME TO ELY: A long- time resident takes us on a tour of the historic cathedral city, whose magnifi cent ecclesiastical structure dominates views of the fenland countryside for miles around. Annual events include festivals devoted to apples ( including a longest apple- peeling competition!) and ploughing with horses.
• ENGLAND’S WORLD HERITAGE SITES: From the Derwent Valley Mills in Derbyshire and Studley Royal Park in Yorkshire, to Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire and Stonehenge in Wiltshire, there are 20 places in England recognised by UNESCO for their great beauty and historic importance. We look at what makes them so special.
As in previous years there is a useful region- by- region section providing information about places to visit in each county, a useful diary of events and numerous other illustrated features.
