A very big house in the country
A country home - the desire of many

Rural Housing

Every week, three hundred British people pack their bags in city houses and flats and head off for new lives in the countryside - in the past ten years two million people have moved out of London alone. This rush for the rural dream is putting tremendous pressure rural areas as well as causing resentment among some local people who find they can't afford to continue living in the villages where they were born. Do we have the right to choose where to live, whatever the consequence?
For this week's Costing The Earth, Tom Heap investigates the effects of our love affair with country living.
