The brothers Matthew and George Culley were successful Northumberland farmers who pioneered and spread improved methods and livestock breeds, notably developing the Border Leicester sheep which became very important in northern England and Scotland. The brothers travelled widely, observing farming methods and expanding trade; and their travel journals and letters give a fresh and practical picture of agriculture and related conditions in England and Scotland in the late 18th century.
