Scotland & Ireland Through Cumbria To The South
This book traces the history of cattle droving from Scotland and Ireland through Cumbria and southwards from the start of regular trading in the early 1600s to its decline in the 19th century. It explains why droving was practised and how it grew into the largest traffic in agricultural produce that these islands have seen. It examines droving’s influence on agriculture and its contribution to general economic development.
