Project ID698
DescriptionTony Twigger is researching the Chartist Land Cooperative Society, devised by Feargus O’Connor, a leading Chartist. The aim was to resettle industrial workers on smallholdings. Though ultimately the scheme failed, its legacy can be seen in the ideas of William Morris and the smallholding movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
