Description: Around twenty-five miles north-east of the county town of Lancaster, nearly 550 metres above sea level, a tiny spring arises under the shadow of the famous Three Peaks. This is the source of the river Ribble. Along with tributaries of immense variety and interest - the Hodder, the Calder and the Douglas - the Ribble flows through some of the most beautiful and historically important landscapes in the country, finally to meet the sea twenty miles west of Preston. Anciently the Ribble formed a political boundary between north and south, as well as an important routeway from east to west; and today it still marks a stark contrast between rural countryside to the north and industrial landscapes to the south. In this unique and important new book, Malcolm Greenhalgh combines local history - Iron Age hillforts, Roman camps, monastic farms, ancient crosses in churchyards, farming practices and land use - with a comprehensive and authoritative account of the area's wildlife and how it has changed over time. The result is a book which explains, with rare clarity and insight, how the countryside we know and love came to be as it is today, as well as how human intervention has moulded many disparate landscapes in different ways over the centuries, right up to the present day.

  • Hillside Publications Ribble Valley and Bowland

    Price: £4.99

    Brand: Hillside Publications

     

    Description: This brand-new title is one of three concurrent additions to the updated series of Paul Hannon's 'Short Scenic Walks' guidebooks. The principal feature is that all walks are less than five miles in length, offering a perfect half day's stroll for families, casual walkers and all who want to enjoy a leisurely exploration of Britain's outstanding country landscapes. This title is based in and around the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Lancashire, and a range of enhancements include a wider geographical spread, in this case merging - with full revision - two popular titles which are now out of print. The walks start from such places as Slaidburn, Chipping, Dunsop Bridge and Downham, and include such iconic features as Pendle Hill, Waddington, Longridge Fell and the River Ribble. In addition to being more visually appealing than their predecessors, with a more modern house style, this new series offers 30 walks rather than 20, and these more substantial books feature a full spine rather than wire-stitched binding. Over 30 colour photographs depict features and landscapes along the routes. Hillside Publications Ribble Valley and Bowland - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk

    Description: With its fen-like lowlands, its coastal scenery, the high fells of Bowland and the lush river valleys of the Ribble and Lune, Lancashire is a county of surprising diversity from its great Industrial heritage towns to its attractive, rural villages and its numerous historic monuments.

  • Epoque Press If the River is Hidden

    Price: £9.99

    Brand: Epoque Press

     

    Description: If the River is Hidden charts the journey of two writers from the source to the mouth of the Bann, Northern Ireland's longest river. Through a dialogue of prose and poetry the history, landscape and divisions that have come to define the North are explored and challenged. With backgrounds from each side of the sectarian divide, theirs is a journey of uncovering a sense of place and of searching for meaning; a reshaping of the authors' own memories, experiences and expectations. For like the river, it is not just what is visible, but what is hidden, that comes to define us.
