Craig Taylor / Stephen Thorne

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.

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 globalisation; 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.
