Yet another beautiful city, is there something about Transition starting up in the more scenic parts of our country? Here in Durham I come across my first Transition Fruit Group, and when I met Jules he was delightedly clutching the papers of incorporation for the brand new enterprise Fruitful Durham which has just emerged blinking […]

You might know this place from the movies (well, the Transition Movie 2.0), or from the recent Hairy Biker series that helped establish a meals on wheels service. Or even a setting for Last of the Summer Wine or Where the Heart is. It’s got quite a profile for a small place – Slaithwaite (say […]

Norwich is a beautiful city, second only to London in importance until the industrial revolution. Within the city boundary live 137,000 inhabitants, but ‘greater Norwich’ – which includes the urban fringes – is more like 230,000. I learn from Chris that it has a strong shoe making history along with textiles and weaving, and “the […]

It has around 8,000 […]

My first stop is Maidenhead, near Reading, a wealthy commuter town of around 60,000 residents, deep in the heart of the Thames Valley. My first impression of the town (based only on a drive from the station out to the beautiful village of Cookham) was of large, featureless brick buildings – a Travelodge, Sainsbury’s, Odeon […]

Why is this a personal Transition Journey? Well  it’s easy to recall when, where and why this started – in June 2010 at Alington House in Durham I attended a Co-operative UK event which incorporated a workshop called ‘Plan Bee’, where I would be able to learn more about keeping my own bees… however as […]
