Summer book competition

Win ‘Hidden Histories’ by Mary-Ann Ochota

For the times when you’re driving past a lumpy, bumpy field and you wonder what made the lumps and bumps; for when you’ re walking between two lines of grand trees, wondering when and why they were planted; for when you see a brown heritage sign pointing to a ‘tumulus’ but you don’ t know what to look for… Entertaining and factually rigorous, Hidden Histories will help you decipher the story of our landscape through the features you can see around you.

This Spotter’s Guide arms the amateur explorer with the crucial information needed to ‘read’ the landscape and spot the human activities that have shaped our green and pleasant land. Each chapter culminates in a checklist of key details to look for, other things it might be, and gives details of where to find some of the best examples in Britain.

We’ve got five hardback copies to give away (RRP £20), courtesy of publishers Frances Lincoln. To enter, simply complete the form below.

This competition has now closed. Congratulations to Mrs E Evans, Mr M Fox, Mrs F Wade, Mr P Landsman and Mr S Haidon.
