] Thanks for your valuable info; I have more questions about this subject and you say you're an expert...could you email me privately so I could get the lecture on the Geography of Surrey and Farming Practices? I'm in the midst of research on the footpaths question and would appreciate your input. Thanks.
Two resources you might want to consult for farming practices in general are: Arthur Young's "A six-months tour through the North of England....",
and William Cobbett's "Rural Rides" 1821--". Cobbett was a farmer at heart, and you will find details on Surry geography, etc.in his book.
(I just looked in the index)
