Battle & District Historical Society -Life on a Whatlington Farm in Late Victorian Times

March 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Using the daily records kept by the farm overseer at Hancox Farm in 1899-1900, Charlotte Moore will describe the details of life on a 160-acre mixed farm: who were employed there, where they lived, what they were paid; which crops were grown; which animals were kept; agricultural methods, equipment and tools; the links between the farm and the local community, and more. She will compare farming practice then with the current situation – the farm is still operating today.
