Summary

The first book of Coast took us on a sweeping clockwise tour of Britain's marine borderlands, where one type of distinctive landscape gives way to the next. In this companion volume we criss-cross the UK and Ireland, looking at our relationship with different regions of our coast. Each chapter looks at a certain stretch of coastline, how areas within that stretch are related, and what that says about our land, our history and our way of life. For example, Chalk to Chalk takes us from Dover to the Isle of Wight and even across the channel, where the substance of the land itself has shaped how we live there. Holyhead to Liverpool mark the boundaries of The Inventive Coast, a hotbed of maritime innovation and industrial progress. Our military history is explored in The Explosive Coast, which takes us from Carlisle to Arran. We learn how the coast created one of the world's greatest cities, London, along The Capital Coast, and The Emerald Coast is a celebration of Ireland's dramatic eastern edge. Many other varied themes and regions are explored in this fascinating guide to our coast. Fully illustrated with glorious photgraphs, there's much to discover where the UK and Ireland meet the sea.
