CHALK & CHEESE Wiltshire’s rocks and their impact on the natural and cultural landscapes     by Steve Hannath

 

Chalk & Cheese is nearly 100 pages of full colour maps and illustrations. It explores the relationships between the rocks underground and aspects of Wiltshire life such as the Natural Landscapes, Prehistory, Vegetation & Farming, Vernacular Architecture, Settlement Patterns & Routes, Extractive Industries and Water Resources. It is not a book on the geology of Wiltshire per se but rather one for the general reader interested in what underpins the environment of this beautiful county.
This book may be purchased from the author for £7.50 by emailing stevehannath@talktalk.net
