Its a story of tropical seas and coastal plains, landslides and deserts, glaciers and exploding volcanoes, enlivened by climate change, and by continental collisions and mountain building on a Himalayan scale.

Take this book with you as a guide. In plain language and with over 300 original drawings, Barry Butler and John Gunner will show you how Britain's remarkable journey in space and time has left its mark on the rocks and scenery.
