We’ve just uploaded the first lot of sample pages that we’d like to share online before Go Slow England is published. Click here to see four pages about The Gurnard’s Head in Cornwall, which is one of our special places where you can ‘go slow’. Do our photos and our write up inspire you to find out more about this remarkable pub with rooms? Click here to let us know your thoughts

Cheers, Thomas The Gurnard's Head 

Welcome to the Go Slow England blog!

Go Slow England is an exciting new book coming out in March 2008 from Alastair Sawday Publishing, the publishers of the Special Places to Stay and Fragile Earth series. Written by Alastair himself, Go Slow England will be all about the places, recipes and people who take their time to enjoy life at its most enriching. In this beautiful book, which goes beyond the mere ‘glossy’, you will discover an unusual emphasis on the people who live in Special Slow Places and what they do. You will meet farmers, literary people, wine-makers and craftsmen – all with rich stories to tell. Go Slow England celebrates fascinating people, fine architecture, history, landscape and real food. A counter-balance to our culture of haste.

Alastair will be giving presentations and doing book signings in March and April so check the author tour dates page for details.

If you want to pre-register for a copy of the book you can leave us your email address here so we can send you ordering information and a special code for a 45% discount once the book is available. We are also conducting a poll on the best place in England to ‘go slow’ so don’t forget to cast your vote here.

Also, make sure you regularly check our downloads page for free samples, our press page for our latest reviews (and contact details if you are from the press) and sales info page for more information and contact details if you are from the book trade.

We’ll update this blog at least twice a week with news and sneak peeks so keep checking back and feel free to leave comments!
