In this work, Fred Archer traces the history of the Tibblestone Hundred, from its beginnings. An ancient land with ancient traditions, families living in the Hundred had grazing rights for their cattle, and the filed names still recall traditional uses - Rope Ground, Calves Gore, the Promised Land. In telling the story of the changes wrought by the years in Tibblestone, Fred Archer also tells his own story, from the time when his father and others hoed by hand, to his early life on the farm, ploughing Thurness field with the clay coming up like bacon rashers, to today's agricultural practices, with less labour and more intensive rearing. Archer recreates the changing tenor of farming and village life over the centuries. Illustrated with black and white photographs, this book should appeal to all those with an enduring interest in English country life.
