|Admin History||Haggs Farm on the edge of the village of Underwood, Nottinghamshire, was home to the family of Jessie Chambers, childhood friend of D.H. Lawrence. Concerns over the deterioration of the farm arose in the 1960s and individuals made attempts to highlight the need to preserve the farm. An organised group named the 'Haggs Association' was established in 1985, and later became the 'Haggs Farm Preservation Society'.|
