About The Event
Hathern WI would like to invite everyone (men & women) to a free event. There will be a talk about the Life & Times of local and renowned agriculturist Robert Bakewell, who lived and worked at Dishley Grange. This talk will be given by the Secretary of the New Dishley Society, Janet Spavoid.
Robert Bakewell was an English agriculturalist, now recognized as one of the most important figures in the British Agricultural
Revolution. In addition to work in agronomy, Bakewell is particularly notable as the first to implement systematic selective breeding of livestock.
