Village life in England has rarely been photographed with such sensibility. Lucy Saggers’ home village of Ampleforth in North Yorkshire is perhaps best known for its Benedictine abbey and Catholic independent school, yet the village has its own character and history. The name Ampleforth means the ford where the sorrel grows and its population of little more than a thousand is a thriving rural community where livelihoods are very much based on the land. Lucy Saggers’ photographs are stunningly beautiful and have captured the many aspects of village life throughout the changing seasons.
