Tristan Gooley's Five Favourite British Waterside Locations

'There are dozens of these clues and stories and each time the tide comes in they are rubbed out and new ones written.'

The story of the British Isles is a story of water. Wherever we are in the country, water defines our landscape; from jagged, dramatic coastlines, secluded sandy beaches and secret freshwater pools, to our grandest cityscape rivers and meandering country streams. Nobody knows our water-shaped landscape better than Tristan Gooley, natural navigator and author of the bestselling How to Read Water. We gave him the enormously challenging task of picking just five favourite British waterside locations and here, exclusively for Waterstones, he explains why these locations hold a special significance.
