AUTHOR: Jason Hawkes
Hertfordshire From the Air
Hertfordshire From the Air
  • Description

The name of Hertfordshire derives from the Anglo-Saxon meaning the river crossing of the deer, and the name first appears in written records over a thousand years ago. Today it has a population of a little over a million and its area of 634 square miles (c.1600km) makes it one of Englandís smallest counties, yet it contains many jewels architecturally and many interesting towns and villages.

The countyís proximity to London has led to a increase in its commuter population, but less so than the capitalís other near neighbours. While some larger towns, such as Watford, Stevenage and St Albans continue to expand, much of the county remains essentially rural with small villages retaining much of their charm and character.

The fascinating aerial photographs in this book by internationally renowned aerial photographer, Jason Hawkes, are selected to provide the reader with an overview of a variety of landscapes and settlements, with historic sites included. There can be no better way of appreciating the many glories of Hertfordshire than to view the county from above.

Jason Hawkes is one of the countryís bestknown photographers specialising in aerial photography. From his base near London he travels worldwide to produce images for books, advertising and design. Since 1991he has provided photographs for major international companies including Nike, HSBC, Ford, Rolex, Toyota and BP.
