The History of Halewood

The Effects of Enclosure on Nineteenth Century Halewood

The enclosure movement was an integral part of the Agricultural Revolution. In many areas of the country the effects were sweeping and the landscape, the system of farming, and the local society were effected, sometimes to an overwhelming extent. Halewood was enclosed during the first decade of the nineteenth century. To what extent was Halewood Township affected? Was the common land lost here as it was in so many other townships and parishes? How were the locals affected?
This downloadable copy of this thesis hopes to answer these questions and was written by Mike Royden.
