A month-by-month exploration, in words and pictures, tracking the changing seasons through the course of one year in one rather special corner of southwest England.
Kingcombe is one of the very few places left in the country that has never been treated with pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers, so the biodiversity in the wildflower meadows is incredibly rich. The land is now managed and run by the Dorset Wildlife Trust.
“Anita’s writing has a quality that sets it apart: full of literary and cultural allusion, detailed and forensic description, clarity of thought, humour, and above all, a rich humanity. A Year in Kingcombe combines all these into a delightful book that deserves a wide readership. So read, re-read, and enjoy; and then visit this unique place, to experience its wonders for yourself.” – from the foreword by Stephen Moss, author of Wild Hares and Hummingbirds
