This paper provides a unique insight into door supervision in a small rural English town ‘Brassville’, and is based on direct observation of door supervisors. Based on direct observation it outlines both the monotony of work and the potential severity of incidents, in terms of violence, faced by door supervisors in a rural night-time economy, discussing the role of professional and capable guardianship as a form of crime prevention.
