Hall, C. B. (1959) Huntingdon and its region: a study of urban settlement in an agricultural region. Masters thesis, Durham University.
The thesis presents an account of Huntingdon in which site and situation are examined in detail so as to provide a background for a survey of property usage, of which several categories occur. It is considered possible to relate property usage to the dominant activities of the entire locality, of which the town may be regarded as the centre. The functions of Huntingdon town as evidenced by its market, shops, offices, transport facilities, industries and cultural activities are consequently studied in relationship to the wider region of which the town may be said to be a focus. In a final section the usefulness of the method is discussed, brief reference being made to similar studies by other investigators.
