Back Roads Through Middle England

From Dorset to the Humber along the Jurassic stone belt


Winner of the 2018 OWPG Outdoor Book of the Year!

Andrew Bibby sets out to cycle from the English Channel to the Humber, following the great stone belt of 'Cotswold' limestone which has left its mark so powerfully on the countryside. This is a journey of discovery into a very special landscape, and the author draws on themes as varied as social history, literature, land usage, agriculture and rural life today to gain a deeper understanding of the factors that shape the land.

This wonderful book, with full colour photographs, celebrates the beauty of this area of England but also does very much more. Thoughtful, well-informed, sometimes provocative, Andrew Bibby goes beyond the superficial to reveal a Middle England which is considerably more complex than many might imagine.
