The Agricultural Revolution and the Enclosure of Trumpington

Andrew Roberts
This page is about the agricultural revolution and the enclosure of Trumpington, based on a presentation at a meeting of the Group in October 2009. This was an appropriate date, as the enclosure of Trumpington was completed in 1809. The story is in three sections:

the agricultural context in the 18th century
the agricultural revolution
the enclosure of Trumpington
