Short Biography

Tony Bowerman is a humanities graduate and anthropology postgraduate (Durham, Van Mildert) who started out in museums and worked as a publicity executive in the pharmaceuticals industry before becoming a freelance advertising copywriter, writing everything from mailshots and catalogues to exhibitions, books and booklets, video and telephone scripts.

Using his broad knowledge of history and the environment, he later became a heritage and countryside interpretive consultant for national clients such as the National Trust (over 15 years), English Heritage, Forestry Commission, Cadw, RSPB, various Wildlife Trusts, county councils and many others.

His company, Wordplay, also published a range of tourist guides for many years.

Tony is now a director and company secretary of Northern Eye Books Ltd, publishers of outdoor books covering Wales and northern England.
