Description

From the spread of the railways and flight to the cities in the early 19th century, through to floods and global warming in the 21st century, this is a timely reminder of just how much the British countryside has endured over the last 200 years. A selection of pieces from the Guardian that reflect the changing face of rural Britain over the past 200 years. Includes subjects as varied as windfarms to city farms, mass trespasses and the rise of the rambler through to the creation of English vineyards and the return of the red kite. This poignant collection shows how the countryside adapts to everything we throw at it, yet still remains our most valuable and beautiful resource.
