The Ancient Woods of the Helford River by Oliver Rackham - Little Toller Books
The Helford River, Cornwall, is one of the very few places in England where ancient woodland meets the sea. It also has a curious industrial and cultural history. Describing the geology, history and flora of twenty-five individual woods, the book explains how these special places have survived the centuries and what the future may hold for them. With this posthumous publication, we explore one of Oliver Rackham’s favourite places to carry out fieldwork in the British Isles and celebrate the life and work.
