IT'S been more than 30 years since Ronald Blythe told the story of a Suffolk village. At the time there were problems over its future because of the decline of agriculture and the tradition of working on the land.

Here Craig Taylor returns to discover changes in rural life and discovers that community life is still alive and well.

It is a well-timed sequel to a Blythe's original, which in a way, has become a classic on country living.
