I am very interested in your comments on John De Morgan. I am researching the history of the campaign to save Epping Forest in the 1870s and the reasons why the campaign seems to have been less violent than at Plumstead & also Hackney Downs, where De Morgan was also involved. I have read your article”The battle for the Common” & have based my thinking around your argument on working class activisim in the anti-enclosure movement. I think working class involvement in the Epping Forest campaign, though dismissed by historians, was significant and had a material impact on for example the 1874 election in Tower Hamlets. I’d like to get in touch!
