About this event

Farming in Oxfordshire in the interwar years

Dr. Michael Heaton

The interwar years were particularly harsh for farming in Oxfordshire as in most parts of the country. From the early 1920s to the end of the 1930s most farming wasn't profitable - for a variety of reasons explained in this talk, which also sets the scene back to the end of the Napoleonic Wars. Many farms responded by moving away from traditional mixed farming towards increased specialisation. An important outcome was divergence in the success and longevity of individual farms.

Michael Heaton is the author of several village and farming histories. This talk is largely based on quite recent research, using 35 case studies from ten counties, for a PhD at Leicester University’s Centre for English History. Since moving to Wheatley near Oxford, Michael has written Bygone Wheatley; created a village heritage trail; and is involved with the Oxfordshire Buildings Record.

News from Pendon: we will present some of the most recent modelling developments at Pendon.

During the event there will be ample opportunity for question and answer.

The meeting will be held on Zoom and information about joining the event will be provided after booking.
