Guild Socialism: The Storrington Document

  • Asa Briggs

The following pages embody the results of a series of discussions held by a small group of Guild Socialists at the end of December 1914. The discussions extended over a week which the members of the group spent together at Storrington in Sussex. From this fact the report came to be known among certain National Guildsmen as the ‘Storrington Document’. The method adopted was that, at each meeting, a particular aspect of the Guild problem was discussed. When the fullest possible interchange of views had taken place, an effort was made to reach an agreement on all points of difference, and, after long and heated arguments, this was accomplished at all but one of the meetings. At the end of meeting the points agreed upon were written down.
