Re: A building referred to as a Buck House

Hi Brendan
I am glad you have an answer to your question at last, and that you posted it on our forum.
Now we all know what a buck house was used for - it would be great if you could cite the source of this information.
Best wishes

Re: Nurserymen & Seedsmen of c.1750 to 1850 England viz Newcastle to London connections

Hi Rosegirl It looks as if you can read that article online for free.

Re: Durham Agricultural Society

Thanks for your very full (and referenced) answer, Nutmeg. I'm sorry if your original answer disappeared - I don't know how that happened because I can't get rid of some posts that ought to be removed :-)

The first county show was held in 1841 at Chester le Street, just a couple of miles f...

Hi Kelly
I was not aware that this was a limitation of being a 'newly registered user'. But I have removed you from the 'Newly registered users' group now, so would you like to try sending a message to Alan again? Let me know whether it works!

Re: Shire Horse stud farms

I have a reply from Yvonne Hatch, who says she is 'not sure if “purpose-built, single-phase farm complexes for the breeding of Shire Horses….etc….” means a dedicated heavy horse breeding stud on farm land. Most of the major heavy horse studs in the UK were based on the great estates, and I would bel...
