11 - LOCAL GOVERNMENT and OTHER PUBLIC SERVICES

Today, we take public services such as health, police, fire, highways, transport, housing and libraries, museums and culture for granted. Until the mid-19th century, little or no emphasis was placed on their provision by a range of governing bodies which, although acting as independent bodies, at times operated in parallel. This chapter seeks to explain how all these bodies functioned and how local government as we know it has evolved in Tickhill. It also covers other services not already discussed in previous chapters.
