Local Businesses

This section is primarily about local businesses, their economic activity and employment. Local employers will be invited to describe their businesses:  their history and how many employees they have.

The section will start with larger companies, past and present, who are well known locally. Eventually it may also include individual specialised craftspeople who may work from home.

Farming and management of the large estates will be described under ‘Custodians of the Countryside’ where environmental and business aspects are heavily intertwined.
