The churchyard - God's Acre - is one of the most enduring features of our landscape. The 20,000 churchyards in England and Wales span every possible habitat from sea shore and rocky coastline to grass and heathland, moor and deep wood. In this beautiful production, Clare Roberts's evocative drawings and watercolours faithfully present this miniature landscape through all the changing seasons. Francesca Greenoak writes out ofa deep respect for the continuity of all life and her lyrical account chronicles the history, traditions and customs of rural parish communities as well as describing the urgent practical sreps thar must be raken to conserve a dangerously neglected and threacened part of our inheritance.

Illustrated by Clare Brooks. Foreword or introduction by Richard Mabey. Size: 9¾" x 8". 192 pages.
