Roger Deakin Archive

Notebooks from the Roger Deakin Archive at the University of East Anglia

Each of Roger Deakin’s three books, Waterlog: A Swimmer’s Journey Through Britain, Wildwood: A Journey Through Trees and Notes From Walnut Tree Farm are stunning, the apotheosis of natural history writing. The picture above is of Deakin’s notebooks, archived at UEA. One day I might spend a very blissful day thumbing through those books.

  1. Oh, how I love to look at people’s handwritten notes and notebooks. I have never read Deakin but was many times looking at his books and soon ordering them. Which one will you reccomend to read first?
