We asked the Voices about their perceptions of the village - how good was it to live here and to grow up here, as well as whether they had seen any particular changes  over the years.

A number of them had strong views - both about the place they had grown up in and about how the village had changed (for the worse for most of them…)

These pages reflect these views:  as well as negatives about the disappearance of the shops and  changing nature of the population, they talk about good things like the arrival of electricity and running water.
