I’ve just finished reading these three excellent booklets about enclosure and the open field system in East Yorkshire… Two were written in late 1950s and the third in the mid eighties. All were thoroughly researched, succinct and insightful.
You can buy them from http://www.eylhs.org.uk for the bargain price of £2.50 each including postage!
