Description

The third title in this well-received series of guides to the major British motorways. Following the success of the M5 Sights Guide (now put of print) and the M6 Sights Guide (available from all good book shops), Mike Jackson has now travelled, examined and photographed the M4 from end to end - starting north of Swansea and ending at Chiswick flyover. It's over 200 miles long and has nearly 300 photographed sights. It's packed with an intriguing exploration of the communities around the carriageway and offers incisive commentary on the culture, businesses, attitudes and environment through which the carriageway passes. Like the previous books, it's irreverent and avoids replicating the tourist or public relations literature. Instead it reveals little known and often funny facts about the institutions we are passing. What's going on behind those doors? Which famous people have lived in those big houses? What do they make in that factory? What terrible things have happened in that hotel? What do the guide books never tell you about Windsor Castle? From coal-mining to computers, horses to Heathrow, poverty to affluence. Insights, anecdotes, statistics and trivia about hundreds of places you can see from the carriageway. Guaranteed to makes journeys along any part or all of the M4 hugely more enlightening.
