About this book
A book about the blank spaces on the edges of towns and cities, between the urban and the rural. Roberts and Farley write about mobile masts, gravel pits, business parks and landfill sites, and form a critique of what we value as 'wild'. They are both award-winning poets. 'Marvellously quirky' "Daily Telegraph"
Passed through, negotiated, unacknowledged: the edgelands - those familiar yet ignored spaces which are neither city nor countryside - have become the great wild places on our doorsteps. This title describes mobile masts and gravel pits, business parks and landfill sites, taking us on a journey to marvel at these mysterious regions in our midst.
