The counties of Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire, sometimes called the "garden of England", contain some of the most beautiful buildings and lush landscape this country has to offer, and seen from the air it attains a new and unexpected glory.
Jason Hawkes provides stunning bird's-eye views of such sites as Dover Castle and the White Cliffs, Canterbury Cathedral, Hever and Leeds Castles, Whitstable Bay, Sissinghurst, Arundel, Brighton, the New Forest, Epsom Downs, the ancient cathedral city of Winchester, and the Isle of White - plus much else besides.
A highly informative commentary on the pictures is provided in the captions, which often show us details of the photographs which the cursory glance might miss, and explain how the shape of modern towns, cities and their surrounding countryside have been influenced by history.
Among other unexpected highlights are superb views of the Roman town of Silchester, of Epsom Downs and the racecourse, of the Isle of Wight, and of Channel ports like Dover, Folkestone, Newhaven, Chichester, Southampton and Portsmouth.
