Me and My Square

Alex Mansfield | 14:46 UK time, Tuesday, 30 August 2011


Sheila Dillon Meets John Lee Price in Hoghton


On Radio 4 today from 12.45 we heard Sheila Dillon return to her Domesday Square around Hoghton in Lancashire


The dairy farm at which she used to work in the holidays, the lack of public housing available since 1986, much has changed in 25 years. While looking for a paper mill and a wine wholesaler listed in Domesday, she runs into a chap who remembers doing the original project at school and now works at a steel foundry.


Yesterday Mark Lawson described what 25 years of supporting Leeds United feels like, whilst tomorrow Paddy O’Connell returns to Aberdeen. Richard Coles and Jane Garvey complete the quintet this week.


Domesday Reloaded: Me and My Square is proving a fascinating series. Do check it out on iPlayer if you can't catch R4 at lunchtimes. You can also see pictures of each trip at the You & Yours site.  


And don’t forget you’ve got until 31st of October to update Your Square…
