Rural renewal: a nation of communities in cities, coast and country
Hywel Lloyd pages 84-90


There is something of a renewed interest in the rural across the nation. You can see it in the wider world: we have seen this growing interest in the broader culture, including the popularity of James Rebanks’s English Pastoral (reviewed in Renewal, Vol 29 No 3) and his earlier book The Shepherd’s Life, as well as Bella Bathurst’s Field Work and Isabella Tree’s Wilding, the story of the renewal of the Knepp Estate, in Sussex.

Labour: Coast & Country (LCC) has been ploughing the furrow of non-urban policy and practice across the labour movement since 2011. It was founded by a group ofLabour members who had worked, and mostly still do, on the issues and opportunities facing communities of coast and country. This group collectively recognised that these communities are key to the future of the nation, yet had slipped from the attention of too much of the labour movement.
