There are many ways in which you can do ‘community’ and there’s always something relevant to be learnt from other people’s experience of communal living. In this book Rachel Rowlands tells the story of the original Bamford Quaker Community over its 25 year life. From start to – almost – finish. It’s rare to read such a detailed and honest account of the entire lifecycle of a communal group. All the problems and pitfalls are there but so, also, are the many achievements and successes. The Quaker Community at Bamford in Derbyshire was, and still truly is, a Community of Friends.
