How to Value a Skylark : The Countryside in a Time of Change Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


At the beginning of 2020 there was a moment when we accepted the world needed to change; and then it did. During prolonged periods of lockdown, everyone in Britain was obliged to stay close to home. The importance of the outdoors and access to the countryside became more important than ever, and to a wider range of people. As we return to a 'new normal', the future of this vital green escape deserves scrutiny. 

The Government has promised a radical way forward in maintaining and enhancing our rural landscape, embarking on a new environmental 'nature friendly' approach. All future changes, though, are set against the backdrop of alarm over a climate emergency, and the continuing loss of wildlife.

This book sets out to provide a guide to these topics in a non-technical way.

Will the pandemic accelerate these radical changes or push them into the background?

What do we expect from the British countryside?  

Is time running out?
