Although figures have been cut in the ground in many parts of the world, it is in England that hill carvings are most accepted as an art form.

In Hill Figures of England, Maurice Askew explores the myths and legends behind each of the figures, considering when they were carved and the possible reasons behind their creation. Above all, he gives each a personal angle with his distinctive paintings.

Hill Figures of England aims to be an enticement to lead the reader to seeking out, discovering and visiting these small bits of English history.
