The number of farm or agricultural workers in England numbered around 250,000 consistently through the 19th century. Farms varied in size, but the average covered between 100 and 300 acres. This entailed a considerable amount of physical labour; hence the high employment numbers in agriculture.

The 19th century saw some of the benefits of the industrial revolution spread to rural areas. Machinery such as this press wheel land roller made tillage much faster and less backbreaking.
