The Unofficial Countryside

The Unofficial Countryside

Between the city and the countryside lie edges and fringes that are neither city nor nature. Out of sight of planners and the wider public, these outskirts acquire an ambiguous character. What thrives in this uncultivated landscape are flora and fauna, small-scale and informal activity, and also recreational use by those who seek space outside the city. Unique qualities arise in these areas precisely because of their long history of negation and neglect. The documentary is an appraisal and evaluation of these so-called edgelandsaround Manchester. The observation is accompanied by a voice-over of Marion Shoard’s essay ‘Edgelands of Promise’.
