Buckinghamshire Machine Breakers - The Story of the 1830 Riots

£34.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This softcover book is in very good condition overall. The cover of the book has some very minor markings visible throughout, as well as some very slight wear to the corners. Inside, the pages of the book are in very good condition overall and are without major issue. The book is the second volume in a series which covers different parts of the country.

'The forms the disturbances were to take in Buckinghamshire differed slightly to that of other affected counties. There were very few cases of arson reported or reports of money being demanded after machinery had been broken. Although attacks were made on the property and machinery of farmers the main targets were the paper mills along a three mile stretch between West Wycombe and Loudwater. A number of these mills had recently installed machinery, and at a time when 300 paper makers within a five mile radius of High Wycombe, or Chepping Wycombe as it was called then, were said to be unemployed it was almost bound to cause trouble.'

'In this, and other volumes proposed in this series, I am trying to piece together the events in each area and find out something about those who were involved.'
