The World is a Bundle of Hay
by Roy Alan Preece
A personal memoir of growing up and working on a family farm in the 1940s-50s: a short and unique period just after the second world war when the English countryside was flourishing, but modern farming was still mostly in the future.
Roy trained first as a scientist and then as an environmental designer with a particular interest in the history of ideas in landscape design. Roy’s doctorate was on the subject of landscape beauty and its conservation. For over twenty years Roy gave regular courses at Rewley House in the University of Oxford on Historic Houses and Gardens with special emphasis on the contexts of ideas at different periods.
