Wild About Britain by Brian Jackman

Enjoy a new collection of award-winning journalist and author Brian Jackman's nature and travel writings from the past 40 years. It is an enthusiastic celebration of Britain's unspoiled coast and countryside, concentrating in particular on Britain's wildlife and the wild places in which its most spectacular species are found. Wild About Britain also touches on fishing, sailing and the way Britain's history has shaped the landscape.

"Wild About Britain is not a guidebook" says Brian Jackman. "It's an extended love letter to the British Countryside; a personal view covering more than four decades of travels in the wilder parts of Britain."

You could win a copy of this superbly written and evocative book by telling us about your favourite, hidden places in Great Britain. Write a comment below or post on the forum thread. There are 2 copies of the book to be won and the competition closes on 30 November 2017.

    The Forest of Bowland. Beautiful and still quiet even in the high season. Great food and places of interest to visit, but lovely walking country as well.

    We love the Meon Valley in Hampshire. There are lovely views, and the South Downs way passes through the area. The chalk stream of the Meon is very important for wildlife, as I blelieve 80% per cent of the worlds chalk streams are in Britain. There's a lovely walk/cycle path along the former Meon Valley railway. Altogether a lovely area to explore.

    Standing on the cliff top at Flamborough Head in Yorkshire has to be one of lifes best experiences. The view is fantastic whatever the weather, although the wind can be chilly in Winter.Bring your binoculars to view the seals bobbing in the water below. A working lighthouse stands at the top which can be visited if you are fit enough to climb the steps up. Afterwards stop at the welcoming cafe for a cuppa and snack or a full meal whatever you feel like.

    I have been to Portland in Dorest many times, it is so unspoilt and full of nature. A walk to the lighthouse Portland Bill is both invigorating and a nature lovers dream. Chisel beach is a glorious sight to see, stretching for miles , I sit there and watch the seagulls dart about. Crab sandwiches at the cafe by the lighthouse are a real treat.
