Utopia Britannica ?

I discovered this informative book when doing some research for along with several other Champions for Helen ,John Diamond and Katy Golstraw after our Edge Hill University training sessions in Manchester as part of the Rochdale Community Champions – Sharing the Magic Enabling Research project.

Utopia Britannica
Chris Coates
312pp paperback, b&w illus; Diggers and Dreamers Publications


This archaeology of dreams explores every corner of these islands detailing over 500 utopian experiments in a comprehensive historical gazetteer and telling the stories of our utopian ancestors from early Christian Sects to the foundation of the welfare state … – less a catalogue of broken dreams, more a rough guide to a utopian future.

Recommended reading for Champions interested in social housing experiments or possible futre alternatives to the present .This will be available free from Rochdale Library soon since I ‘ve ordered a copy this week for Library users.
