Bought 18 Nov 2010 – Oxfam

An update of the original Ronald Blythe “Akenfield”, which I’ve been looking for for ages. Although it was interesting and had interviews with Blythe himself, it didn’t really seem to have any of the original characters or families (I might be wrong here) and seemed distanced from the original somehow. I found it quite depressing to see what was becoming of our lovely countryside and farming tradition although there were glimmers of hope.

I’m going to offer a double bookring of the 2 books, to allow people to have the chance to read the two together…
