Edgelands : Between the Urban & the Rural

Edgelands: Between the urban and the rural – Paul Farley and Michael Symmons Roberts have written a book – Edgelands – in praise of England’s marginal places: the miles of parking lots, industrial estates, scrubby fields and derelict yards that exist on the edges of our cities.

Link to Marion Shoard’s Observer article – ‘As this illuminating book warns, our desire to prettify Britain’s abandoned spaces will strip them of their character’.
