New Landscapes, New Technologies is a partnership project between Berkshire Record Office and the Museum of English Rural Life supported by the New Opportunities Fund.
From this portal you can access two websites with digital images from our collections relating to the history of the British countryside and farming between 1738 and 1914.
We have digitised large maps, handwritten parchments, printed catalogues and engravings, and photographs. The site contains over 50,000 images which illustrate the British agricultural revolution.
You can view:
• All the Parliamentary enclosure maps and land awards for the historic county of Berkshire, England
• Illustrated trade catalogues of Victorian agricultural engineers and manufacturers
• Contemporary photographs of agricultural machinery
