The village is dead and has been for a long time, many people say. However one may see this, it is certainly true that the self-contained rural world that revolved around farm work and in which the church, the school, the cheese dairy, and the baker clearly identified the village centre has long since vanished. For many others — and above all for village dwellers themselves — the village remains alive, simply in another form and in different economic circumstances.
