Description

All over Britain and Ireland there are planned villages: for aesthetic, philanthropic or political reasons, for convenience and for ideals. Some of them Portmeirion, Port Sunlight, New Lanark, Bournville are well known, and remain major tourist attractions. Others languished in near-total obscurity until Darleys pioneering study was published in the 1970s.

Now available again in a revised edition, Villages of Vision describes and illustrates many of the planned villages that can be seen around the country, as well as several that were never built or no longer exist. Of particular value in the new edition is a much expanded gazetteer giving county-by-county details of over 400 such planned communities.
