The Lincolnshire Wolds in the 19th century
This book charts a dramatic period in the history of a fascinating and neglected part of the county.
It examines the momentous change and one which saw a farming backwater transformed into one of the leading agricultural regions of the country. It traces the development of the landscape and the life of the people of the Wolds, assessing the contribution of the great landowners, the tenant farmers and the labourers to the region. It looks at the market towns and the role of their trades people and provides a clear overview of how society developed on the Wolds. From backwater to nationally cited example of good practice, to agricultural depression and decline.
