High levels of biodiversity exist within the fabric of the rural built environment, a feature that has hitherto been poorly recognised both within research and policy contexts. Many rural residents greatly value contacts with nature and this forms a key component in attracting many rural in-migrants. Nature in village space is not a static entity but is being continually reworked through complex socio-nature processes.
