Nestled within the heart of the county, sparsely and largely untouched by the pressures of the modern age, the Kent Downs are home to some of the most enchanting countryside in southern England. This book unravels the history of the area's settlement and colonisation, the inspiration it has given to poets, artists and authors, and the legacy of its rich and varied natural treasures; the rare and the commonplace; the peculiar and unique, the mysterious and the haunting. Having spent most of his life living and working in the countryside of the Kent Downs, Dan Tuson offers an intimate and inspiring exploration of this unique landscape. He is a regular contributor of articles and photographs to The Orchid magazine of the kent Downs Area of Outstanding Beauty organisation, many of which have been included within the book and illustrated wih the beautiful artwork of fellow contributors to The Orchid, Angel Design. Richly illustrated with over 100 stunning photographs in colour and monochrome, the book is a tribute to the many who have found solace and inspiration in the Kent Downs and will appeal to all those who visit, work or live in this cherished part of the county of Kent.
