Lewes History Group talk: Farming and the Ouse Valley Landscape 1770 – 1940 – Monday 14 February 2022, 7:20 for 7:30pm start

A Zoom Webinar

Dr Sue Berry: Farming and the Ouse Valley Landscape 1770 – 1940

Many landowners and tenants invested heavily in improvements which they hoped to increase agricultural output. Bigger farms, drainage schemes including altering the course of the river, and eventually in housing schemes and a dairy.

But outside influences such as changes in state policy and the arrival of cheaper imported food eventually resulted in major changes in ownership and farming.

We shall look at key themes in a saga which affected many chalk landscapes.
