Sourdough recipe used in the workshop 17th March, taken from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall: http://www.channel4.com/4food/recipes/chefs/hugh-fearnley-whittingstall/...
The baker at River Cottage wrote this book with a similar but slightly more developed sourdough method, which I suspect Hugh tweaked http://www.rivercottage.net/users/River%20Cottage%20Bread%20Handbook/
It's well-worth looking at for straightforward instructions and bready recipes.
I've never been sure why but the Transtion Buxton website has always been a target for spammers (or at least, it has for all the time I've been working on it)
I spend most of my days working with websites now, from personal blogs to public facing sites for international companies and this site gets more malicious attacks than all of them put together. For example, today has seen 77 fake user signups (yesterday saw 91) - most of these are stopped by the CAPTCHA (squigly images that you have to enter to prove that you are human) but even these can be got past by spammers.

The farm owner gives his own account of the realities of renewable energy on a small scale. Informative and myth-busting in a beautiful setting in the Peak District, England.
