This dramatic portrayal of life on a 19th century Borders farm gives a unique insight into the lives of the Hinds and their Bondagers.

Set in 1866, it shows resentment reaching fever pitch as the hiring season approaches and an attempt is made to get rid of the Bondage System for good.

We meet the Bondagers, Hinds, Squire, Farmer and Vicar and hear their thought-provoking opinions.

Written by Dinah Iredale (author of the popular book 'Bondagers') the film is based on original documents and eye witness accounts and has been beautifully brought to life by Shadowcat Films.

Bondagers : The History of Women Farmworkers in Northumberland and South-East Scotland (Iredale, Dinah)

This book has been many years in the making, and is the most comprehensive and accessible work on the Bondage System for farm workers that existed in Northumberland and South-East Scotland throughout the Nineteenth and in the early part of the Twentieth Century.

Bondagers is published by the Glendale Local History Society, in part thanks to a grant from the North Northumberland Leader Gold Small Grants Scheme administered by Community Action Northumberland. Chairman, Roy Humphrey, said: The Society is delighted to have been able to help Dinah see her excellent book into print. The Bondage System was unique to Northumberland and South-East Scotland and it is particularly appropriate that the fullest account of this most fascinating subject has been written by a local author, printed to a high standard in Berwick, the archetypal Border town, and published by a local publisher, our Society. I believe it has every chance of becoming the standard work on the subject and that it will generate interest far beyond the immediate locality it deals with".
