A decade-old obsession for Dutchman Pieter Boogaart resulted in a guidebook that looks like no other, to a subject never before fully explored: the A272.

Three continuous texts wind their way through the book, simultaneously exploring the A272 itself and the countryside it passes through; extra commentary is provided in yet another level of text. Hundreds of colour photographs complete this homage to the ‘epitome of England’.

After six impressions, now in a fully revised, updated, improved FOURTH edition, and – of course! – 272 pages long!

Pieter Boogaart is European Secretary of the Folly Fellowship. A noted book reviewer and teacher, he lives with his wife and collaborator Rita in Eindhoven in the Netherlands.
