Herefordshire’s Rocks and Scenery
A Geology of the County ISBN 978 1 9010839 16 4
Friday 21st April, the above book was launched at a short, friendly ceremony at the Shire Hall, Hereford. The purpose of the book is to explain in readable, accessible text the varied geology of the county of Herefordshire and to remind that the county was at the forefront in the mid 1800s when geology was a young science. In my opinion it fully achieves its brief with wonderful perspective drawings, maps, photographs and text uncluttered by Greek or Latin–definitely a book for anyone who wishes to understand the landscape and for whom Herefordshire is a very special county. The several authors are to be warmly congratulated for completing an epic work commenced ten years ago. Hilary purchased several for our library and we heartily recommend that at £15, this is a book that should sit on the bookshelf of anyone interested in local natural history.
