The story of Alderley

Living with the Edge

edited by Prag John

Published by Manchester University Press

  • There is a vogue for books and research projects describing aspects of the story of a particular place, process or species: none takes such a comprehensive approach as this one
  • Many of the approaches and techniques used in the project such as GPS and GIS were ground-breaking at the time; they have since become routine
  • This was a project that involved academics of a high calibre, a 'local author' of international repute (Alan Garner), as well as local people
  • Chapter 13 (Invertebrates) and Chapter 30 (the Legend) have already aroused international interest
  • Like the pioneering educational website which was one of its offshoots, many aspects of the Project can serve as models or inspiration for others (e.g. the Alderley History Group)
