The key! The key!

New to the website yesterday was the key to the 1798 Wing enclosure map. This is a list of everyone who obtained land (or already held land) as part of the enclosure process. The text of the actual award, plus some sort of fancy mapping of the map itself, will come in due course. However the key is pretty useful on its own as simply a list of who was around in Wing at that time with enough clout to get land.

I've also added a more general page about farming in Wing. This explains the pre- and post-enclosure farming systems in general terms. I'll be expanding this later on with more information about what the farms, farmers and farm workers in Wing actually did.
