Catherine Raynor’s blog is the first of a series of guest posts on the theme of Sense of Place. It’s 18.14 as I start this post. I’m writing it in my garden. I have a stack of paper in front of me. On it are the notes for a plan that I will write up tomorrow
If you ask individuals what ‘sense of place’ means to them, they offer up thoughts like ‘it’s the people’, ‘a place with history’, ‘a place I feel connected to’, as well as ‘sights, sounds and smells.’ The academic literature supports this.

‘Sense of Place’ is where I plan to post occasional blogs by myself and others. Links to guest blogs I’ve written and which have been published elsewhere will generally appear on the Blogs and Links page of this website.
