From 1850 to 1880, British agriculture responded to rthe repeal of the Corn Laws by enlisting the modern advances in chemistry and industrial organisation and steam power. Prince Albert may have led the way, but several in the Avon region were also setting an example. The new approach had little time to settle before British agriculture was hit by imports steamed in across the oceans, but left its mark, as much perhaps as had the enclosures of an earlier age. Here WilliamEvans tells how the story played out in these parts.
