The Easternmost House
By Juliet Blaxland
In the not-too-distant future, Juliet Blaxland’s home will be demolished, and the land where it now stands will crumble into the sea. In her numbered days living in the Easternmost House, Juliet fights to maintain the rural ways she grew up with, re-connecting with the beauty, usefulness and erratic terror of the natural world.
The Easternmost House is a stunning memoir, describing a year on the Easternmost edge of England, and exploring how we can preserve delicate ecosystems and livelihoods in the face of rapid environmental change.
