One of our latest additions to the library is a recently published title on Hoo.

Hoo Pen

The Hoo Peninsula is located on the north Kent coast 30 miles east of Central London. The book raises awareness of the contribution that the historic environment makes to the Hoo Peninsula by describing how changing patterns of land use and maritime activity over time have given this landscape and seascape its distinctive character.

It uses new information, which involved historic landscape, seascape and farmstead characterisation, aerial photographic mapping and analysis, area assessment of the buildings, detailed survey of key sites and other desk-based research. It takes a thematic view of the major influences on the history and development of the Hoo Peninsula and demonstrates the role that the Peninsula plays in the national story.
