Steve Mills will give a talk on the contents of his recent BRHG pamphlet/’Poaching in the South West’/ which considers the poaching wars in rural areas in the 18th and 19th Centuries and the arms race conducted between the poaching gangs, landowners and game keepers. He will also look at the development of the ‘poaching’ laws in the period and the famous Berkeley Case.
