This booklet of Landscape Walks features a guide to the villages, geology, flora and fauna, industrial landscapes and estuary of the River Kent. Written by the late Peter Standing in his inimitable style, it is copiously illustrated with 175 photographs and 28 maps, including aerial views, lidar images and the author’s own diagrams. The book also brings into print for the first time an updated and expanded version of the 5km Storth Geotrail, which was originally developed by the author for publication on the web. The book includes an additional six trails of between 0.5 and 5km: Bela Estuary; Marsh Lane; Hazelslack; Teddy Heights; Guard Hill and Storth History.
Peter had almost finished this work at the time of his death; it was subsequently prepared for publication by his family in Peter’s memory. Thanks to the kind generosity of Gillian Rimington, widow of the author, the Landscape Trust is now able to publish this revised edition, which has been updated to take account of changes in the area in the vicinity of the walks.
