others, like Ray Island in Essex, are abandoned and mysterious places haunted by myths, ghosts and foxes. In this evocative and vividly observed book, Patrick Barkham explores some of the most beautiful landscapes
in the British Isles as he travels to ever-smaller islands in search of their special magic.
