The Lincolnshire Poacher


Davide Reviati Libri


This enigmatic shadowy figure of the Fens, Wolds and Marshes is famed in folklore and song. The Lincolnshire Poacher thrived by capturing unsuspecting prey of feather and fur with his reliable, canine companion by his side.Although landowners and gamekeepers disliked him, ordinary people who needed his skills and humble offerings considered him a hero; poached game was their only way survive in cruel times. He was a vital element of the ancient agricultural landscape in the vast county of Lincolnshire.The Lincolnshire Poacher took his role seriously, often risking imprisonment which is shown in the featured Lincoln Prison records from the 1770s to 1880s.David Tonge writes a comprehensive account of The Lincolnshire Poacher?s life throughout the centuries. Included in this book are unique anecdotes from poachers, gamekeepers and law-officials which show the ingenuity, self-preservation and imaginative traditions The Lincolnshire Poacher employed to survive in an inhospitable world.Now, the need for poaching has disappeared because of the plentiful supply of food in our many local supermarkets, but The Lincolnshire Poacher should be remembered and celebrated as a man of his time.
