22 Ideas That Saved the English Countryside

Founded in 1926, The Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) is one of the oldest conservation movements in the world. Celebrating the CPRE and the earlier campaigns and ideas of British people which have bequeathed to the present generation a countryside that is still a repository of beauty and tranquillity, despite 300 years of sustained development and population growth. Archive imagery, colour photography and an insightful text explores the ideas and people behind campaigns; from concepts of Town Planning, such as the restriction of Ribbon Development in the 1930s, Green Belt, ‘brownfield’ redevelopment and urban regeneration, to broader concepts, such as the long history of a wish for National Parks, once voiced by William Wordsworth, to modern-day anti-littering campaigns. Includes contributions from Julia Bradbury, Tony Robinson, John le Carré , Andrew Motion and Simon Jenkins
