Once the hunting reserve of kings and princes, today the Forest of Bowland is both a recreational haven for the public and a biodiverse region of international importance. This lavishly illustrated book focuses on the sweeping fells which form the very heart of a 312 square mile Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.



This celebration of nature, landscape and recreation would be incomplete without some exploration of the area's two most popular activities: walking and bird watching. The author tackles both in entertaining essays on the freedom to roam, for families as well as serious fell-walkers, and on an intriguing tale of dark deeds among feathered friends and foes.



In this stunning book, Andy Stansfield fills the pages with evocative images which capture the changes in colour and character throughout the seasons, picking out telling details as well as magnificent panoramas.

Andy Stansfield is a Lancashire-based photographer, feature writer and author specialising in travel and outdoor leisure. Details of his published work and current projects can be found on his website: www.andy-stansfield.com

Outdoor Photography

One of Andy's many talents as a photographer is that he somehow squeezes into an image much more than the visual representation of that scene - each vista carries with is a wealth of hidden emotion and expressions of all that is being sensed at the moment the shutter is tripped.
