    Musician Darren Hayman has created this website to document his ‘project about rural life’ in which he visits every one of the 54 Thankful Vilages in England and Wales . A Thankful or Blessed Village, is the name given by writer and educator Arthur Mee to a settlement where every soldier returned alive from the First World War. The films, music and text on the site rarely refer directly to the Great War itself: Hayman’s project is more a way of exploring aspects of life in small rural communities and documenting his own responses to his journey through the music he makes - written and recorded in each village as he travels the country.
