Book Description

This book studies the development and administration of turnpike trusts in England from 1663 to 1840. It is concerned specifically with assessing the economic importance of the trusts before and during the Industrial Revolution. Dr Albert provides a detailed and comprehensive history of English turnpike trusts, superseding in many respects the standard accounts of the subject written in the early 1900s.
