Twenty years ago, Jacqueline Yallop began her working life leading guided walks at a small village high in the fells of the North Pennines. Built by philanthropic employers for families working the lead mines, the isolated settlement was one of a network of 'model' villages which sprang up across Britain during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In this book, Yallop visits, and re-visits, some of these utopian experiments to explore their rich histories and to understand the social, political, and cultural contexts from which they emerged.

Thought-provoking look at the background to some model villages in England.Perhaps a bit too much historical detail as much of this is already well documented.Most interesting account of Tremadog and Porth Madoc in Wales.
