A popular misconception of Surrey is that it’s better known for its suburbia than its scenery - a busy, affluent and overpopulated, shire, whose towns are merely dormitories for the capital.

Whilst there is some truth in this assertion, it does ignore the fact that there is a considerable amount of unspoilt countryside and open spaces. Although Surrey contains more miles of motorway than any other county, it also contains more acres of woodland - a 22.4% coverage compared to a national average of 11.8%.

Divided east to west by the North Downs, pierced by the valleys of the Wey and Mole and punctuated by hills and open heathland, Surrey has many hidden places to discover and explore. The National Trust owns much of the open spaces and historic houses, and seeks to preserve and protect them for future generations.

Local author and photographer Mike Cope travels the highways and byways of Surrey to reveal a host of delights in more than 60 sparkling colour images, featuring the country houses, gardens and the precious landscape of this sometimes under-estimated but always historic and often extremely attractive county.

Mike Cope lives in Woking, Surrey and has been walking the Surrey countryside on a regular basis with local and national walking groups for over twenty years. He is a freelance writer for Country Walking magazine, and has published over 30 walking routes for Surrey, Hampshire and Staffordshire. He has a Ph.D. in analytical chemistry, and when he isn’t walking or writing, works as a consultant to the pharmaceutical industry.

Imprint: PiXZ Books. ISBN 978 0 85710 058 0, hardback, 110x155mm, 64 pages. Published July 2011.
