THE BOOK OF POOLE HARBOUR Edited by Bernard Dyer & Timothy Darvill
Poole Harbour has long been in need of a comprehensive illustrated account of its remarkable history. That this first book on the Harbour ever to be published is the work of 30 authors, all of them authorities on aspects of its story, and that it contains over 300 illustrations, many of them in colour, is a tribute to the richness and diversity of the Harbour itself. It may only be 8650 acres in area, but it is one of the most fascinating and beautiful places in Britain, as well as being of international importance for its landscapes and wildlife. Here then is Poole Harbour’s story, from its formation following the last Ice Age to the twenty-first century.
