Dreamstreets: A Journey Through Britain's Village Utopias

by Jacqueline Yallop - £10.99  Vintage Publishing (Vintage) (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780099584636 | ISBN 10: 0099584638

Twenty years ago, Jacqueline Yallop was leading guided walks at Nenthead, one of a network of ‘model’ villages which sprang up across Britain during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. A life-long fascination was born.
 
From Scotland’s New Lanark Mills to the Arts and Crafts cottages of Port Sunlight, Yallop visits these utopian experiments to explore their rich histories. Looking at everything from sewage systems to sculpture, chocolate to coal, and free trade to electoral emancipation, this book is a personal exploration of why and how these village utopias came about, what they tell us about the past, and how they still resonate with us today.
