English Pastoral: An Inheritance

English Pastoral is the story of an inheritance. It tells of how rural landscapes around the world have been brought close to collapse, and the age-old rhythms of work, weather, community and wild things are being lost. And yet this elegy from the Lake District fells is also a song of hope: how, guided by the past, one farmer began to salvage a tiny corner of England, doing his best to restore the life that had vanished and to leave a legacy for the future. The No. 1 best-selling author of The Shepherd’s Life talks to Julian Glover, journalist and Chair of the Government’s review into our protected landscapes.
