Marginal Land – Richard Mabey quote

“… it is often in those awkward-shaped parcels of ground – left over like a hem when the surrounding areas have been sewn up – called ‘marginal land’. These seem to be multiplying with the piecemeal extension of built-up areas: a sliver left over between two strictly rectangular factories, a disused car dump, the surrounds of an electricity sub-station”
– p.38 The Unofficial Countryside (1978), by Richard Mabey
