The story of Haggs Farm, D.H. Lawrence and the Chambers family.
D.H.Lawrence found in Haggs farm, the people who lived there and the surrounding countryside, his first incentive to write. The farm, the landscape and the Chambers family provided the models for Miriam's farm and family in Sons & Lovers and inspired his first novel the White Peacock. From 1901-1908 Lawrence visited the farm so regularly that he almost became one of the family.
The essays in this collection explore that relationship, relate the history of the farm and its tenants, and deal with other aspects of the life of the Chambers family. 72pp
