In 1970 Will Garfit, then in his final year as a postgraduate art student, borrowed ?8,250 and, at an auction, bought sixty-nine acres of abandoned gravel pits, which he had loved to explore as a child. Over the next thirty-five years, with the help of friends and volunteers, he turned this wilderness into one of the most celebrated small sporting estates and conservation areas in Britain.
Will?s Shoot Revisited is indispensable reading for anyone managing a shoot or fishery however small, but it will provide inspiration and practical ideas for a far wider readership who will be carried along by the enthusiasm of the author and the sheer adventure of an astonishing project.
