Villages of Vision: A Study of Strange Utopias

by Gillian Darley - £14.99  Five Leaves Publications (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780907123507 | ISBN 10: 0907123503

All over Britain and Ireland there are planned villages: for aesthetic, philanthropic or political reasons, for convenience and for ideals the best known being Portmeirion, Port Sunlight, New Lanark and Bournville. Gillian Darley covers many hundreds of these strange and pretty arcadias built by aristocrats, industrialists and visionaries.
 
This revised edition includes a greatly expanded gazetteer, revised bibliography and a new introduction. The gazetteer shows, county by county, where such villages can be seen not as museums but as evolving, living places.
