The A272 is the epitome of England, crossing the heartland of the southern Home Counties from Poundford in East Sussex to Winchester. It runs through some of the most beautiful and historical landscapes in the country. Pieter Boogaart travels the length of the A272 exploring, probing, commenting, meeting extraordinary buildings, people, history, and follies. His book covers the road itself, as well as everything of interest ten miles north and ten miles south. It a practical and easy to use guidebook, ideal for any journey, however short, along this beautiful road. Lavishly illustrated in color, this is a book for anyone who loves exploring England, either on the road or from home.
