Over the last three years, MERL staff have been travelling the length and breadth of the England talking to people about their lives in the countryside. During our conversations, Brexit and the impact of European Union membership on rural life has been one issue raised by some of our interviewees both before and after Britain’s 2016 referendum. This display in our Community Case explores some of their thoughts on this complicated topic which continues to divide opinion.
