Morpeth Town Sale Catalogue  - Click for bigger imageThis is an extract from a sale catalogue relating to Morpeth town. Sale catalogues were usually produced to give details on the extent of properties and land for sale. Catalogues could range from sale information relating to vast estates or to single dwellings. Many contain photographs of properties together with descriptions of the state of repair of the dwellings for sale. Some catalogues, which relate to agricultural land, state the type of crops planted with production yields from land. This particular extract comes from the County Land Agent's collection of historic Sale Catalogues. The County Land Agent formed part of Northumberland County Council, which was formed in 1889. The Land Agent was employed to represent the County's interests and to oversee the introduction of schemes promoting the use of land for agriculture.
