Finally got around to finishing this, and so glad I did. Thoughtful, gentle prose from the excellent Helen Macdonald.

Thankful Villages | A project about rural life by Darren Hayman
"A Thankful Village is a village where every soldier returned alive from World War 1. The term Thankful or Blessed Village was coined by Arthur Mee in his set of guidebooks, The King's England in the 1930s. Darren Hayman is visiting each of the 54 Thankful Villages and making a piece of music and a short film for every one focussing on village life. Some take the form of instrumentals inspired by location, some are interviews with village residents set to music, others are new songs with lyrics or found local traditional songs." Lovely project from Darren Hayman.
