Picturesque Planning

Interesting blog post about the Festival of Britain by Ben Cowell of the National Trust.  He reflects on how modern planning can incorporate sense of picturesque, of the local.  Jacquetta is mentioned because of her work on the Festival and because of the powerful sense of place evoked in A Land.  The post was prompted by Harriet Atkinson’s new book The Festival of Britain: A Land and its People (IB Taurus) , which I haven’t yet seen – will report further!
