Abstract

The VCH has long studied patterns of landownership, authority and local government in boroughs and parishes, and this session […] on the expertise thus acquired. Two of the papers extend the theme more widely, to the whole of England and to the Midland region. The third focuses of the more specific question of the Bishop of Durham and his boroughs.
