« Friday summary - gender in the news | Main | Article: When forgiveness seems so hard by Amanda Roper »

September 01, 2011



What an amazing co-incindence! During the week of the riots, I felt curiously detatched as we were doing a mini tour of rural England. We ended the week in Derbyshire and we visited Eyam, a village I'd heard of when I was a schoolgirl when I saw a TV play called 'The Roses of Eyam' and remained fascinated with the story. I hadn't realised it was in Derbyshire but when I did, I took the opportunity to go. Worth a visit as the very human story really brings home the sacrifice made by the people and clearly that event in the village's history is still very much part of the local consciousness. Very thought-provoking. Thanks for the post.
