Historians of early modern England have become adept at reconstructing the social distribution of wealth and power in rural communities. Much less is known, however, about the spatiality of social relations in the English village. In this paper, Steve Hindle uses a unique combination of sources to map the patterns of employment, welfare and sociability in an exceptionally well-documented Warwickshire parish.
