Made in the UK 

Dearne Valley, South Yorkshire


A casualty of abrupt coal mine closures since the mid-1980’s, the Dearne Valley has been left with a fractured labour identity, resulting in swathes of economically stagnant, neglected rural communities. ‘Made in the UK’ aims to explore the localised; historical, current, and potential future of labour, in order to develop alternative long term strategies, stimulating a new eco-economy through off-site manufacturing processes. Speculating on the position of labour in a more forward-thinking ecologically aware society - this design-research reconsiders existing urban design strategies, proposing an alternative resilient future for post-industrial rural mining towns in South Yorkshire.
