This thesis examines how urban spheres in influence in Leicestershire have impacted upon the development of infrastructure related to transport and commerce and the relationships between urban and rural areas in the county more generally. The thesis looks at the historical development of urban spheres of influence from the medieval period through to the mid-twentieth century. The relationship between town and country is shown to have undergone a significant evolutionary change, one hastened by the changes brought about by the industrial revolution. The thesis concludes by considering the implications which the changes enacted between the town and country may have on local government administrative boundaries which are often historically based.
