about

From vanished villages and bygone businesses to abandoned architecture, forgotten pastimes and projects put on hold, Lost Britain tells the intriguing story of Britain’s buildings, counties, transport, languages, roads and rivers that have been forgotten over the centuries. The book shines a light on the hidden corners of Britain’s history, exploring medieval ghost villages, former architectural masterpieces, the purported resting place of Anne Boleyn’s heart, England's Atlantis, God's Gift, a German war cemetery, the hamlet of Lost in Aberdeenshire, the old Welsh railway run on seven different forms of power and a missing fort in County Down, not to mention how Britain used to be connected to mainland Europe. Exploring the history of the lost parts of Britain, author David Long both mourns their loss and celebrates the achievements of the engineers and architects of past generations, revealing some extraordinary features of this nation’s history that should not be forgotten.
