5—Constable Country by Jennifer Walker
Assistant Warden of Flatford Mill
Field Study Centre
' The fertile valley of the Stour, the beauty of the surrounding scenery, its gentle declivities, its luxuriant meadow flats sprinkled with flocks and herds, its well-cultivated uplands, its woods and rivers with numerous scattered villages and churches, farms and picturesque cottages, all impart to this particular spot an amenity and elegance hardly anywhere else to be found.'
The area is still largely as Constable described it in those words, quite unspoiled, with an interesting variety of meadows, marshes, woods, and mudflats. Miss Walker talks about the plants and animals of one of the lowland woods and the way it has been influenced by the hand of man.
