Dr Macfarlane teaches widely in the English Tripos, chiefly in relation to ideas of landscape, nature, people, place and environmentalism. He is well-known as a writer, with prize-winning and bestselling books about landscape, nature, memory and travel including The Old Ways, The Wild Places, The Lost Words (with Jackie Morris) and Underland. The Gog Magog Hills and Magog Down are a landscape he loves, and about which he has written, and we are honoured that he has agreed to support The Magog Trust through his patronage.
