Stretching along the counties bordering England–Cheshire, Shropshire, Herefordshire and Monmouthshire–the Welsh Marches are a mix of mountains and moorland, farms, and wooded river valleys. The densest concentration of motte and bailey castles anywhere in England or Wales is found in this area of market towns, villages, and countryside. Its diversity is reflected in the photographs that illustrate the changing year.
This coffee table book is one to be picked up and enjoyed again and again for its outstanding photographic record of the Welsh Marches as reflected in the seasons of the year.
