Exploring the Islands of England and Wales: Including the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man by Julian Holland
There are nearly 40 inhabited islands off the coast of England and Wales, and dozens of other uninhabited ones. Some are well-known commercial, financial and holiday destinations, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, the Isle of Wight; others are small, remote, peaceful and mysterious like the Farne Islands, the Scilly Isles or Lundy. But all the inhabited ones and many of the uninhabited ones are reasonably accessible, and this richly illustrated book provides the first ever guide to them all. With details of their geology, history, flora and fauna, inhabitants and customs, it is also a practical book with information on how to get there, where to stay and eat, island walks and architecture, sites to visit, sights to see and details of relevant websites and contacts.
