Abstract

Drawing upon interviews conducted with a range of white residents, the paper opens the debate about the politics of place to empirical analysis. Attention is focused on the understandings of some of the area's essential Englishness whilst, at the same time, articulating a desire for diversity and difference. Their accounts do not demonstrate a clearly bounded sense of place. Their understandings are compared to those of their working class neighbours to consider how the politics of race and class intersect in the construction of place identities
