Dwellings, villages, places of worship, castles and work places have, with the passage of time; decayed and blended into the surrounding countryside. Covering a period of time from 2000 BC to the present century, they all retain a certain atmosphere, mystery and secrecy. The observant lens of Michael Hales has discovered many places which have long been forgotten and buried. Some of these places have never been photographed, while others will be more familiar. Wynford Vaughan-Thomas has written an entertaining and informative text to accompany beautiful and evocative photographs - all of which have been specially commissioned for this fascinating book. Over 130 black-and-white photographs; glossary, map and grid references, bibliography and index.
