£20.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

'Clive Aslet has been an extraordinarily informed and influential standard-bearer for the cause of the countryside and Britain's heritage for many years' Max Hastings



What would you save if your house was on fire? It's a question we have all been asked time and again - a parlour game that we are all familiar with. But what if it wasn't your home but Britain that was on fire, and the treasures to choose from the miraculous buildings, places and landscapes our unique nation has to offer?



In this delightful celebration of the wonders of our fair and fertile land, Clive Aslet takes us on a journey across the nation to marvel at 100 sites of great importance and beauty. From unique foliage in Wales and the stunning Dorset landscape, to the famous White Cliffs of Dover and the abundance of cathedrals in London, Aslet lovingly captures the magic of the places and buildings that underpin our national identity.



Uplifting, joyous and charming, The Crown Jewels of England is both a tribute to our beloved nation and an open invitation to discover the world of astonishing beauty that lies just beyond your doorstep.
