    Abstract

    The flight of rural populations into towns is one of the most important social transformations in history. Swanage developed during the nineteenth century from a small settlement dependent on a single declining industry into a successful holiday resort town. It provides a case study of regeneration conducted by entrepreneurs when most land development was controlled by private individuals. Their motivations, procedures, successes and failures can provide insights into the urban regenration techniques used by the current UK government.
