Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The demands for a rapid increase in domestic food production during the Second World War resulted in significant changes in agricultural land use from 1939. Government intervention through the activities of the County War Agricultural Executive Committees (CWAECs) had a major impact on agricultural practice.This paper investigates how agricultural land use changed within the district of North East Lancashire, and by considering data over a twenty year period (1931-1951) assesses the extent to which the impact of these changes lasted beyond the end of the war.
