"Mr. Betjeman (1906-1984) knows England as few other writers know it. He is never put off by the superficial defect, but has the real artist's curiosity which delights in discovering behind the twentieth century shop front the old Tudor brick and in exploring the alleyway which leads off the main street.
He does not only enjoy the historic and obviously beautiful but relishes the period flavour wherever it may be found.
To those who know Mr. Betjeman's poetry, this book wil merely be a confirmation of those rare qualities of wit, observation and discrimination with which they are familiar."
