Product description

From the producers of BBC TV's Wainwright Walks and Railway Walks, a stunning aerial guide to Britain's spectacular built heritage.

Includes: Britain at Work, Building Britain and Spiritual Britain.

Britain has a fascinating and diverse heritage, and the landscape reflects an absorbing story of invasion, innovation, ingenuity and inspiration. This exceptional collection takes you on a spectacular journey across Britain to discover and explore the architectural, industrial and spiritual history of a proud island nation.

Stunning aerial photography, from Skyworks’s advanced high-definition camera, offers unrivalled views of the most historically-important and landscape-defining buildings and locations as you travel the length and breadth of Britain. Informed narration from Richard Mervyn guides you through thousands of years of history as you enjoy the breathtaking aerial footage.

The celebrated sites of pre-history, early Celtic settlements, Roman occupation, the Norman castles and cathedrals, the Tudor houses, the Victorian grandeur, the Empire-inspiring industrial revolution and the modern landscape – every era of Britain’s development is studied, and the most notable landmarks viewed in all their glory from a spectacular aerial aspect.

The airborne journey examines great cities, including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Glasgow, innovative canal, railway and road networks, magnificent stately homes such as Blenheim Palace and Chatsworth House, and awe-inspiring places of ritual and worship. The events and people which shaped the landscape are recalled, from ancient times to the modern day.

Britain from the Air is not only a fascinating story of the spiritual, industrial and architectural heritage, it is also a wonderful opportunity to see many of the greatest landmarks as never before, viewed in fabulous detail from the air.
