Somerset, a Portrait in Color

Somerset, a Portrait in Color de Robin Bush

Somerset remais one of the most unspoit and varied of English counties, and yet this is the first book ever published to portray it completely in colour. It is a county of contrasts. To the west lie the rolling open uplands of Exmoor, whilst to their east three ranges of hills the Brendons, Blackdowns, and Quantocks – border the fertile Vale of Taunton. Further east stretches the wide expanse of the Somerset Levels, drained by an elaborate network of ditches, but an area still often flooded in winter. The rich agricultural land continues through the south and south-east, reaching as far as Frome in the north-east. The northern bound ary of the county is marked by the Mendip hills, rising beyond Wells and cleft by the dramatic Cheddar Gorge.
