Abstract

This article considers the ideology, role and activities of the National Land and Home League during the period 1911-1918. Founded in 1911, the organization sought to bring together people from across the social and political spectrum who all shared a concern with the relationship between the land and the home in British society, and who sought to ensure that there were greater opportunities for all citizens to become smallholders and practioners of old rural skills, including in suburban areas. The article draws out some of the tensions and contraditions contained within the League's outlook.
