The Orchards of Eastern England: History, Ecology and Place

The Orchards of Eastern England: History, Ecology and Place LANDSCAPES 193 The Orchards of Eastern England: History, Ecology and Place, by Gerry Barnes and Tom Williamson, Hatfield, University of Hertfordshire Press, 2021, 258 pp., 67 colour illustrations, £16.99 (pbk), ISBN 978-1-912260-42-3 The scope of this book is a much-neglected topic in landscape history, the traditional English orchard. Indeed, the whole theme of orchards and their mix of historical development and associated ecology and cultural aspects is generally overlooked by academic researchers. In some ways, this is surprising since orchards and fruit-growing generally are of wide public interest and, as such, have triggered numerous orchard-related projects over recent decades (see, for instance, Rotherham 2008). This volume written by two of our most prolific and highly respected landscape historians helps close the gap in knowledge and results from a three-year project, ‘Orchards East’. The work draws on wide-ranging archival research, exten- sive surveys of orchards surviving today and biodiversity surveys of the same. The orchard history and culture of east England (made up of Hertfordshire, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hun- tingdonshire, Bedfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk) is far less known than that of the west of England, for example. Here, the authors present the fascinating story of orchards in the east of England http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Landscapes Taylor & Francis
