She left Campden at the age of 18 and worked outside Britain. After her divorce, she came back to live in Campden in She is also U-turn Campdonian. She was surprised that there had been very few Campdonians participating in CADHAS activity and thinks that Campdonian should participate in its activity. Her 96 year-old mother is also living in the town and has a strong interest in recording the history of the town. As the archives room became a counter to answer the inquiries, the network of the society was broadened towards outside the town. The volunteer people of the archive room fully enjoyed the discovery of unexpected links with distant places by following the relatives in old photographs.

This moved her to take a history course at university after which she became president of the society in These photographs were taken from to by a photographer who lived in Campden during that time. They were important for the town history and they were exhibited parallel with the photographs of the present town.

The sections for slide show and computer with photographs and music were also set. Among them, there were many non-members pointing at old photographs with nostalgia. Moreover, both old and new residents were talking by looking photographs and slides See Figure 4. Figure 4. Photo Exhibition : Contacting point between Campdonians and incomers.

It was the time when the local generation who had experienced to work and live outside the town came back to retire. They have broader views and similar feelings with the landscape as incomers, and so they can mix with incomers. There are local people who guide and welcome tourists by running the tourist information centre, organizing guided tours around the town and providing tourist facilities.

In fact, incomers are the most influential people in turning their imaginary world into reality. They are preserving historic houses and thatched cottages by actually living there. These houses characterize the landscape of the town. They control the landscape of the town by a conservation society and the town council.

They also do voluntary work in the tourist information centre and guided tours as local wardens. The gaps between incomers and Campdonians such as the difference of classes, economic power, lifestyles and sense of value are unchangeable so that the conflicts between them potentially exist within the community. Campdonians have hardly joined the societies and trusts which incomers formed and occupy.

I carried out the participatory long-term fieldwork in 18 months from April to October and in 12 months from April to March In both periods, I was living in the town to research how the residents have hold balance between preserving heritage and developing tourism as well as how social groups of the town have worked and connected in the community.

Friend Reviews. There is a tendency for studies of nineteenth century Britain to concentrate on urban life and neglect the rural dimension. This reflects a period of unparalleled industrialisation, urbanisation and unprecedented urban problems.

Yet in nearly half of the population of Britain lived in rural areas and many more had been born in the countryside or had experienced rural life.

It can be argued that for most of the nineteenth century a rural view of the world continued to exert a significant influence in Britain. Successive Reform Acts may have redistributed power after , much political power and personal wealth remained in the countryside until the late nineteenth century [1].

Two further myths about rural life should be dispelled. First, there is a view that rural life was in some way separate and distinct from that of towns. In fact rural life in Britain had never been separate from the towns and, as nineteenth century urbanisation developed, the interconnectedness of rural and urban became stronger and more obvious. Even in the s few areas had no contact with urban areas and by few rural dwellers had no contact with the nearest market town; by the s even upland Wales and the Highland and Islands of Scotland were being integrated socially and economically into a regional system focused increasingly on the larger towns.

This connection took various forms:. Secondly, that life in the countryside was easier than that of urban dwellers.

Commentators like Engels misleadingly contrasted the images of an idyllic rural life and the horrors of urban living: 'They did not need to overwork; they did no more than they chose to do and yet earned what they needed. They had leisure for healthful work in garden or field, work which, in itself, was recreation for them, and they could take part besides in the recreations and games of their neighbours They were, for the most part, strong well-built people Their children grew up in the fresh country air In rural housing was a mixture of poor quality decaying older properties, poorly built new houses and a minority of decent stone or brick-built cottages for the more prosperous.

The nature of work was, in some part, a determinant of the nature of rural housing. Living space was more important for the domestic weaver or knitter who spent much time indoors, than for the farm labourer who toiled for 12 hours a day in the field. In contrast the single migrant who left home to seek work might have been hired at a hiring fair and either given accommodation as a lodger in the master's house [most common in the north and west of England] or housed and fed in sheds or outhouses along with other hired hands as in the arable counties of England in the early nineteenth century.

Population growth since the mid eighteenth century had resulted in a crisis in rural housing that had several consequences: Many families were permanently overcrowded. Individual privacy was difficult and much of life, especially the development of friendships and courtship, was lived outside the home in lanes, woods and fields. Marriage was often delayed due to the lack of opportunity to set up home. Epidemic diseases such as smallpox or typhus fever spread rapidly in overcrowded and insanitary conditions.
