What links Britain’s ... Iron Age hill forts and urban skyscrapers? Churchyards and docklands? Golf courses and gravel pits? Together, they make up The Accidental Countryside.

Wherever you go in Britain – in the city, town or countryside – you come across hidden havens for wildlife. They may be home to sand lizards and stoats, adders and orchids, water voles and peregrine falcons.

In The Accidental Countryside, naturalist Stephen Moss tells the fascinating and uplifting story of how wildlife has taken advantage of us – often when we least expected it. And as we enter the most challenging period in our history, he also asks a crucial question: without these places, will Britain’s wildlife be able to survive?

Stephen Moss is a lifelong naturalist, broadcaster and author. His books include The Twelve Birds of Christmas, Wild Kingdom: Bringing Back Britain’s Wildlife and The Wren: A Biography. Stephen is Senior Lecturer in Nature and Travel Writing at Bath Spa University.
