Restoration Village

Overview

Many villages in Britain today are battling for their very survival. The original reasons for their existence and the working lifeblood that gave them their wonderful individuality - fishing, mining, agriculture, seaside holidays etc - have gradually disappeared. The result is that the fabric of Britain is rapidly changing. An awful blandness is creeping over large parts of the countryside at all points of the compass.

Overview

Many villages in Britain today are battling for their very survival. The original reasons for their existence and the working lifeblood that gave them their wonderful individuality - fishing, mining, agriculture, seaside holidays etc - have gradually disappeared. The result is that the fabric of Britain is rapidly changing. An awful blandness is creeping over large parts of the countryside at all points of the compass.

Restoration Village , working in partnership with rural regeneration agencies, identifies three villages in seven regions: North, South, East, West, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. All 21 villages have a building that was once a lively much-loved part of the village - schools, shops, pubs, chapels, village halls together with warehouses, factories, barns where the village once held dances, or simply a building whose purpose everyone has forgotten and that now stands boarded up and sad. The chosen buildings each have a unique social history and all are in public or trust ownership. Whatever the building, it is given a new life for the 21st century, recreating a village hub that will reverse the decline of the village, raise morale, bring people together and galvanise them to action.
