This pamphlet examines detailed examples of how communities, businesses and local government have come together to make use of heritage infrastructure, and looks at lessons that they might hold more generally. Infrastructural networks shape the way that people think about place. They govern the way that people connect to the physical environment and how places within it connect with one another. The networks of the past comprise a visible and everyday heritage that people can adapt and to which they can respond. Railways, canals, sewers and industrial routeways can be reappraised, repurposed and reused to meet emerging and future needs.
