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

See also Percy Robinson's note about the inclosure maps and the
introduction to
farms and farming.
