Big History Day 2023 – Farms, Farmers & Farming

Farms, Farmers and Farming

The 2023 Big History Day took place in Shepherdswell Village Hall on Saturday 2nd September focused on the history of local farms and the lives of those who worked on them.

Agriculture has shaped the villages of Shepherdswell and Coldred and dominated the lives of its people until relatively recent years.

Listed below are the many farms that once existed around the village and links to the wealth of researched information that was on display on the day.

We would also like to thank the following groups and establishments for supporting us on the day.
