This article outlines the development and implementation of participatory research methodology centred on observational techniques. It discusses theoretical understandings of the methodology and how it works in practice. The research explored the use of public spaces by different social, ethnic and activity groups across the course of a 12-month period, drawing on the experiences of, and data collected by local non-academic researchers who were trained in a non-participatory semi-structured observation method. The article discusses how this method was developed and implemented and considers some of the issues around how participatory research works in practice.
