Lincolnshire is a big county, ranging from the unsuspected heights of the rolling Lincolnshire Wolds, across the prairie-like expanses of some of Britain's most fertile soils to a coastline which includes bracing Skegness and the ports of the mighty Humber. But outside the boundary it is scarcely known, which is a surprising fact in this overcrowded island. "Moods of Lincolnshire" is a superb evocation of this unknown but beautiful and varied county through over 140 wonderful colour photographs. Janet and Peter Roworth know the county intimately, having lived there for many years and working for various conservation organisations. Their look at the county reveals many surprising and unsuspected gems, from the glories of the cathedral-capped city of Lincoln, to the superb architecture of country towns like Grantham, and Stamford, and the rolling rural acres of the hinterland.
Janet's photography developed from her interest in local history, architecture and the recording of listed buildings for the Images of England project. Peter has worked in conservation for over 30 years and is currently employed by English Nature as Site Manager for the Lower Derwent Valley National Nature Reserve. The couple lived in Lincolnshire for many years and their work has featured in numerous publications, including Enjoying the Humberhead Levels, published by Halsgrove in 2004.
