Lines Across Lincolnshire: Discovering Routes, Banks and Boundaries

by Jon Fox Green Plover

Lincoln-based author and photographer Jon Fox has published his second book on the Lincolnshire countryside.  This remarkable new book investigates the natural and historical lines, focusing on features used or constructed as routes, banks or boundaries. It covers both geological features such as the Lincoln Edge, former coastlines and extinct Ice Age valleys, as well as man-made lines of every period of history, ranging from prehistoric track ways, Roman roads and Medieval banks, through to the canals, railways and wartime defences of more recent centuries. Collectively these lines still define much of the character of our countryside today.  By tracing their origins and how they have changed over time, the book presents a new and fascinating picture of the historical roots and evolution of the county’s varied rural landscape.

The book (which is landscape not portrait as the photo implies) contains 18 chapters, each covering a separate landscape feature, plus an introductory essay providing an overview of the subject. There are also 14 specially produced maps and is illustrated throughout by the author’s unique and inspiring photographs.

Jon Fox’s first title The Lincolnshire Landscape: An Exploration is unfortunately, currently out of print.
