One of my favourite reads from last year was Lynsey Hanley's "ESTATES: An intimate history"
Just been putting together some resources for my LIVING GEOGRAPHY conference session, and came across a new resource in the BBC MAGAZINE section.
It's a resource based on the SEACROFT estate in Leeds. The main page has a nice interactive map, with links through to video reports from a number of different perspectives, such as Dorothy Wall, who lives in one of the high-rise blocks on the estate, and has lived in the area for 25 years.
There is also a nice reflective piece from Lynsey Hanley
Keep an eye on the comments by others...
A useful resource for personal geographies...
