You can find me waxing lyrical about the secret urbanism of the Green Belt, over at Urban Tick, part of their series on Ecological Urbanism.
Hopefully at some point I'll be able to write a more expansive piece on a psychogeographical cycle ride through Hertfordshire.
Good piece it is, too.

I think Patrick Abercrombie cuts an interesting figure in all of this, being both the most powerful town planner England ever had and yet also the founder of the Campaign for the Preservation of Rural England and the creator of the Green Belt. I can only surmise that he saw the two realms as polar opposites and that one must plan cities and towns to preserve the country, and vice versa, and never the twain shall meet.
