National Trust Book of the Coast
by Claire Gogerty

In 1965, the Trust launched Enterprise Neptune, a nationwide fundraising campaign to highlight the importance and fragility of Britainís coastline.

The Trust now looks after and makes accessible over 700 miles of coastline across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

NT Book of the Coast cover In The Book of the Coast there are evocative essays on wild swimming, butterflies and beachcombing as well as personal stories, including a day in the life of a National Trust ranger. Each story captures the unique character of Britainís shores past, present and future.

As well as a homage to Britainís best-loved beaches, this is an up-to-date practical guide for anyone keen to discover the coast, from the eerie romance of Northumberlandís dunes to the dramatic landscapes of Giantís Causeway.

Each location includes suggestions for local accommodation, walking, wildlife to spot, and local National Trust properties to head to once youíve shaken the sand from your shoes.

Thereís nothing quite like a day by the sea, and itís never been easier to plan the perfect coastal getaway.
