Psst! Want to buy an AONB?

Bookshop receipt. ©NRTThe Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (one grade down from a National Park) is 802km² (312 square miles – the same size as New York City) of beautiful open countryside in Northern Lancashire (and part of Yorkshire), of international significance for its diversity of unspoiled landscapes and wildlife.

However, the word 'forest' is widely misunderstood, and doesn't necessarily involve a single tree; Bowland is mostly characterised by upland moors.

All bought by me on Saturday for £7.49.  Bargain.

Incidentally, I know I said I don't buy from Waterstone's, but I didn't think Amazon sold OS maps (damn – they do), and I was in a hurry.


Presumably you can buy it in quantities greater than 1. Which, quite frankly, boggles the mind.
