Overview

This book tells you about the features of the countryside from moorlands to mountains to specific features such as drystone walls and viaducts. It shows the types of home you can find in the countryside, the people who live and work there and the plants and animals you can find. It looks at transport in the countryside and signs of the past. A map at the end of the book encourages map skills. Questions throughout ask the reader to find out more about what makes a village and encourages comparison between the place where they live and other types of location. Specially commissioned photographs show a wide range of types of village from across the UK.
