    When I think of model villages I think of those miniaturised places that children love so much as they peer in through the tiny windows and look at the treasures within But the title of model villages was given to those places that were built in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries by philanthropists and employers for families working in factories and mines These places are scattered across the country and are as well known as Port Sunlight Saltaire and Bournville Part historical examination and part travelogue Yallop provides a scholarly overview of each of these villages and the effect that they had on the social scene of the day coupled with a personal view of how they sit in the modern landscape now She considers the effect that the Arts and Crafts movement had on the worker’s cottages the rising concerns that the great and the good had about poverty and the political system that gave birth to these communitiesIt is an interesting book these places have become embedded in our cultural landscape The original factories and industries that these places supported are long gone now but some are as popular to live in today as they were when built Yallop brings her expertise and personal experience to the book; she worked giving guided tours at a village in the high fells and it shows as it is elouent and well researched What doesn’t work for me though is it that the books feels disjointed A chapter starts at a particular village then wanders off to other places before going back to visit to the original village It feels a bit disjointed and loses some of the fluidity that could have made it so much better I did like the travel parts of her book though; her visits to the villages are richly descriptive and full of warmth

    35Interesting although a little stodgy in places I have already been to Port Sunlight Saltaire and New Lanark and knew some of the history of these 'model' villages Yallop goes into detail than you'd find just visiting these Utopian 'visions' Not only does she dive into the history but she visits the locations in person walking the terraces and actually going into the buildings if they are open to the publicI did find it a bit irritating that barely into a chapter entitled Cromford Derbyshire she's writing in some detail about other model villages This happens several times easy to forget exactly what place Yallop is writing about at times In general I enjoyed the book but it didn't always flow well and could have been a whole lot better

    An interesting idea and a good mix of history travel writing and biography but a bit of a frustrating read Chapters on one place feature digressions on others making them disjointed A chronological or geographical ordering might have worked better or perhaps a thematic approach Some lovely descriptions of places and atmospheres though
