Thirty-five years after the publication of Ronald Blythe's classic
portrait of an English village, Akenfield, Craig Taylor returned to
the Suffolk village on which the book was based. He sought out
locals who appeared in the original book to learn how their lives
had changed, met newcomers and interviewed Ronald Blythe himself.
The result reverberates with the voices of the villagers: young
farmers, retired orchardmen and Eastern European migrant workers
talk about farming in an age of globalization; commuters,
weekenders and retirees discuss the realities behind the rural
idyll; and the local priest, teacher and pub owner describe the
daily pleasures and tribulations of village life.
