Abstract

In this paper, we summarize the findings of an extensive study of rural lifestyles in England carried out in the early 1990s. We address the notion that there are problematic features of rural life which are often characterized as 'deprivation'. In discussing both familiar research questions about externally defined problems and equally important questions about the different experiences of rural life, we suggest that research should move away from being reliant solely on normative criteria and move towards an approach which also encompasses the differences of experience of the changing material and cultural conditions of rural life. Accordingly, the main findings of the rural lifestyles research programme are discussed at least in part within a framework which responds to the different voices and reflections of the rural people concerned.
