An in-depth guide to our coast infused with Nicholas's Crane's unique perspective.

Coast is one of Britain's best-loved TV series, regularly attracting a viewership of over 3.5 million. It is also a best-selling book series, but this is the first book to be written by a Coast presenter and offering stories from every series and more, to create the definitive guide to our coastline. Nicholas Crane brings his geographer's eye and love of the British landscape to take you on an enthralling journey along our coastline. Both a celebration of and reference guide to the the coast, Nick draws on all the elements that have made the series such a success, from local history to national defence, forts and ports, fishermen and artists as well as sacred buildings and detailed cartography as well as taking in iconic landmarks, seaside holidays and, of course, the wildlife. Nick's evocative prose and extensive knowledge infuse this book, which combined with two colour plate sections, make this an unmissable purchase for all fans of the British coast.
