The Village News

The Truth Behind England's Rural Idyll

Tom Fort

Over the course of the last century, the English village has often been declared dead or dying. In this volume, ex-BBC journalist Tom Fort sets out to discover how these communities are really faring. Fort approaches 6,000 years of history and his own experiences of rural life with wit and entertaining observations, and concludes that ‘the village as a model for communal living is simply too strong to fail’.
