Access to Farming Records for Buckland Brewer

Thanks to a wonderful volunteer, with no connection to Buckland Brewer, we now have access to images of the 1941 National Farm Survey for the parish. This survey was undertaken to ensure that agricultural land was suitably productive, in order to support the war effort. Four different forms were filled in for each farm or smallholding and there are also a series of maps to accompany the survey. This will be hugely useful for our Rural History Project as well as interesting to those researching the history of the individual farms.
