About the Nature Writing Archive

Nature writing is a particular focus within our collections. We hold the archive of Roger Deakin, pioneer of the wild swimming movement and author of the critically acclaimed and highly popular, Waterlog:a swimmer's journey through Britain (1999). We also hold material from acclaimed author, naturalist and environmental activist, Mark Cocker.

WG Sebald's audiovisual archive contains interviews with the author on various topics associated with English and German history. They also highlight how the East Anglian landscape provides an illustration for his discussion of 'England's fall'.
