Grasslands in art and literature

I’m re-writing a report for Natural England on England’s grasslands at the moment. I had more or less completed it last Spring but the election meant NE could no longer be associated with or fund anything that looked like advocacy, or indeed marketing!

Anyway, the stream-lined sleek and succinct version will be coming out in the Spring.You’ll probably see it here first.

I’ve been looking for examples of meadows and pastures in literature and art, to show how important our grasslands were and still are to our culture and history. I came across this wonderful website which I have to share to with you. It’s a treasure trove.

If you have a favourite work of art, poem or book about grasslands, please let me know (leave me a comment) and I’ll try and include it in the report.
