The Farmyard in the 60's and 70's 

We were delighted to meet Ray and Sheila Scopes who lived in Lodge Cottage (now called Chestnut Cottage) for over 30 years. They ran the entire dairy farm and farmed the land on behalf of the Cloughs until the late 90's.  

They were kind enough to give us a huge number of photographs which we are delighted to publish a sample of here:
