Unofficial Britain: Journeys Through Unexpected Places | Gareth E. Rees
Flyovers, factories, industrial estates, breweries, pylons and motorways - in Unofficial Britain author Gareth E. Rees takes us on a trip around the British Isles that visits those places 'where modern life speeds past'. These are places where people and stories coalesce, where unexpected life can bloom.
Unofficial Britain explores these spaces, the stories that they spin and the central part they have played in the history and geography of the UK. Though prosaic and often ignored, they can be seen to exert a powerful influence in our lives and imaginations.
This is a book about the magic, mythology and folklore of our urban spaces.
