Farm Sales

Not so much 'Back in My Day' as those of my ancestors.

I've have just spent the past week scanning Sale particulars of local farms - mostly dating from the 1930s/40s  a few earlier, donated to a local history society by an estate/land agent.

Fascinating stuff, especially as many have 'family' connections.

Nice to go to but usually means another farm gone

Many of the farms were bought by long standing tenants as the larger landowners started to sell off their estates so not all bad and many of the 'names' who bought the farms are still farming them today.
